The nexus of transnational criminal organizations and foreign terrorist organizations presents a unique and growing challenge to the US and other governments. Vanessa Neumann, a Senior Fellow of FPRI’s Center for the Study of Terrorism, has been following the globalization of crime-terror pipelines as a result of her work on the web of connections between Iran and Latin America, the subject of this lecture. FPRI’s go-to person on Venezuela, Neumann is also an Associate of the University Seminar on Latin America at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, where she received her Ph.D, and is co-chair of FPRI’s Manhattan Initiative. Dr. Neumann runs her own political risk consulting and research firm, Vanessa Neumann, Inc., where she consults for government and private industry.
