Abstract

This study examines Hezbollah's depth of involvement in the illegal activities of the tri-border area of South America. This case study used multiple sources ranging from press releases, government publications, to Latin American Journals. The methodology used was supported by Joe Feagin's imaginary analytical induction, which complemented the wide-berth of sources. This study hypothesizes that Hezbollah is utilizing the tri-border area of South America to generate multiple sources of revenue. This concept is confirmed by this study where Hezbollah's activities were researched in depth. Consideration of this research by American policymakers would aid in the development of tailored strategies for the triple border region.
