AS/COA will hold a discussion on the political and economic crisis facing Venezuela and discuss possible scenarios for the nation in 2020. As Venezuela enters another year of political stalemate, the country is marred by a complex humanitarian emergency, human rights crisis, and an unprecedented exodus of its population. Speakers will analyze the internal and external forces that could bring an end to the crisis or encourage further deterioration.
