¿QUÉ PASARÁ EN VENEZUELA DESPUÉS DEL 20 DE MAYO?

Días previos a las elecciones del 20 de mayo, tres destacados panelistas analizarán el panorama económico y político en Venezuela—y qué esperar para el futuro del país. ¿Impondrán sanciones más fuertes el gobierno de los Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea? ¿Por cuánto tiempo podrá el gobierno venezolano sostenerse en medio de la hiperinflación y el desplome de la producción petrolera? Únete a Americas Quarterly en el lanzamiento de la más reciente edición de nuestra revista impresa, “Reconstruyendo Venezuela”, con una mirada profunda a la crisis actual, y los pasos necesarios para superarla. Los temas a debatir incluyen la crisis humanitaria, los conflictos que dividen a la oposición política, el asediado sector petrolero, y mucho más.

 WHAT'S NEXT IN VENEZUELA AFTER MAY 20?

Just days before Venezuela’s May 20 election, three outstanding panelists will analyze Venezuela’s political and economic outlook—and what’s next for the country. Will the United States and the EU impose tougher sanctions? How long can the government sustain itself through hyperinflation and plummeting oil production? Join Americas Quarterly for the launch of our new issue, “Rebuilding Venezuela,” which takes an in-depth look at the current crisis, and what’s necessary to fix it. Topics will include the humanitarian crisis, the divided political opposition, the beleaguered oil sector, and more.

This event will be in Spanish, with English interpretation available.
