Funded by Congress, the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) works to prevent and resolve violent international conflicts and promote post-conflict stability and development. Part of their mission also involves providing high-quality research reports and fact sheets addressing current and ongoing political situations in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. In June 2008, USIP Senior Fellow Barbara Slavin researched and wrote this report that details how Iran extends its sphere of influence across the Middle East. In this report, readers will learn that this includes developing and maintaining ties with Shiite clerics and providing financial aid for humanitarian and political causes.
