Venezuela: Challenges, Crisis and Perspectives

March 27th, 2015
5 PM

Location
100A Jones Hall
Greenleaf Conference Room

Two years after the death of Hugo Chávez, Venezuela’s 21st Century Socialism is confronting serious challenges. The economic difficulties inherited by successor Nicolas Maduro have only gotten worse with the decline in the price of oil. The crisis of Venezuela’s economic model also puts in doubt a revolution based on participatory democracy and social inclusion. From different methodological and disciplinary perspectives, the three speakers will discuss the most significant challenges facing socialism and democracy in Venezuela.

The panel will feature María Pilar García-Guadilla, a Professor at the Department of Urban Planning and the Graduated Programs of Political Sciences and Sustainable Development, at Universidad Simón Bolívar, Caracas, Venezuela, Eduardo Silva, Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, and David Smilde, Professor of Sociology at Tulane University. The discussion will be moderated by Ludovico Feoli, Director of the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research.

Sponsored by CIPR.
