About five months have passed since the venezuelan crisis took a more dramatic turn following National Assembly President and Opposition Jeader juan Guaidó’s decision to exercise the role of interim president with the backing of over fifty countries and challenge sitting President Nicolás Maduro.
Plenty has happened since but the country’s social, economic and political crisis shows no sign of abating any time soon: Maduro remains in power, Guaidó remains a challenger, each side stubbornly supported by their respective foreign and domestic allies and vowing to go on.
What are the current terms of the crisis? What efforts are being carried out to overcome it? What are the likely scenarios ahead? And, most importantly, how are millions of Venezuelans coping with the crisis, if at all?
This session is an open conversation about a country that, now more than ever, needs our attention, engagement and support.
