Watch a video of the panel from C-SPAN, which also broadcast the event.

The potential for political transition has created uncertainty in Caracas and put Venezuela back on the forefront of the hemispheric conversation. What are the prospects and possible scenarios for change? What will be the implications for Venezuela’s economy, politics, and foreign policy? How should the United States and other hemispheric countries respond?

Please join Council of the Americas at a roundtable discussion on the choices facing Venezuela.
