Hezbollah represents one of Iran’s regional expansionist tools, as it has turned in recent years from a Lebanese actor to a regional one following its involvement in the military struggles in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The group’s expansion requires more efforts to re-examine the Hezbollah phenomenon and decoding it.
The purpose of the symposium is to shed more light on Hezbollah ideology, leadership, organizational and institutional structures, as well as its political and military roles. The gathering also seeks to examine the development of the group’s agenda and modus operandi, religious identity making, militarization and political ideology, and attempts to foresee its future choices and strategies.
