Venezuela Today

This seminar took place on April 17-18, 2014 with the aim of examining different perspectives on Venezuela today in order to move beyond the polarized vision that has been derived from the ideological model of the Socialism of the XXI century and put forward by the government.

A systematic approach using quantitative and qualitative methods can challenge the ideological Venezuelan vision promoted by current government’s official policy.
