A Human-Centered Policy Response to the Venezuelan Crisis
The goal of the dinner conversation is to consider appropriate and responsible policy and advocacy responses that place Venezuelans themselves at the center of the policy discussion, taking into account the current context in Venezuela and the real potential for further violence and atrocities. Topics of discussion will include:
- An update on the current humanitarian and political situation in Venezuela.
- A review of the effects of great power competition in regard to the crisis and the implications of the role the United States has played historically in the region.
- Suggestions for support and advocacy by the prevention and peacebuilding communities.
- Recommendations on containing the crisis and addressing the most prominent humanitarian concerns.
This dinner will feature Argentina-based expert Andrei Serbin Pont, research director of CRIES (Regional Coordinator for Economic and Social Research), who will discuss the ongoing political and economic crisis in Venezuela including its humanitarian and hemispheric implications. His remarks will be grounded in research and analysis on the root causes and effects of the crisis in Venezuela and informed by a recent convening of nongovernmental organizations—organized by the Stanley Center and CRIES—in Cúcuta, Colombia.
