Venezuela today remains gripped by severe and interlocking political, economic, humanitarian, and security crises. More than seven million people have fled the country, and while the repressive Maduro regime proclaims “Venezuela se arregló” (“Venezuela has been fixed”), for many Venezuelans, insufficient access to food and basic needs, lack of economic opportunity, and persistent insecurity remain unchanged and, in some cases, worsened. Amid these conditions of profound need, further uncertainty looms following the dissolution of the interim presidency structure and whether elections currently scheduled to take place in 2024 will take place and under what conditions. Yet despite a shifting international and domestic context, providing continued assistance to the Venezuelan people, as well as pressure against the brutal Maduro regime to engage with negotiations in good faith remain paramount.

This event will feature Juan Guaidó, former Interim President of Venezuela, to share insights into the above challenges and identify avenues forward. It will emphasize in particular the current situation and humanitarian challenges in Venezuela, and the ongoing efforts towards a peaceful democratic transition.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
