The Path Forward in Venezuela: Insights from a New National Poll
Please join the CSIS Americas program for a discussion about new research illustrating how Venezuelans view their country’s humanitarian, political and economic crisis. Mark Feierstein, CSIS Senior Advisor and former special assistant to President Obama and senior director for Western Hemisphere Affairs on the National Security Council, will share publicly for the first time a national poll last month by Albright Stonebridge Group and GBAO that shows the opinion of the Venezuelan people on issues such as: Guaido’s v. Maduro’s popular support; perspectives on the United States and other international actors; views on the role of sanctions, negotiations and military intervention; the credibility of elections; and Chávez’ legacy, among other interesting indicators.
During this event, we will discuss with Mr. Feierstein the conclusions of what the role of the international community should be to help Venezuelans chart a path forward. The presentation of the poll results will be followed by a moderated discussion with Moises Rendon, associate director of the CSIS Americas Program and Venezuela expert and Gerver Torres, a research adviser with the Gallup Organization and CSIS Americas Senior Associate.
This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
