We regret to inform you that this event has been postponed. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your interest in the Atlantic Council’s events.

Global energy market disruptions, renewed momentum to resume negotiations in Mexico, and rising uncertainty regarding the legal tenure of Venezuela’s interim government in 2023 have once again brought Venezuela to the forefront of the regional stage.

In a bid to revive negotiations, reports say that Venezuela, the United States, and the United Nations are working on a social and humanitarian fund that could release $3 billion of frozen assets for the implementation and administration of aid programs in Venezuela. These processes and other events, such as the release of seven US citizens wrongfully detained in Venezuela demonstrate how international actors and governments have restarted carving avenues for dialogue.

With midterm elections taking place on November 8 in the United States, how could a new direction in Congress influence the country’s policy towards Venezuela? What opportunities arise for regional governments, particularly in the context of Latin America’s new leaders, to serve as interlocutors? What can be expected of a potential new round of negotiations in Mexico City between the Maduro administration and the democratic platform? Could this lead to additional humanitarian frameworks?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Monday, November 14 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET for a public, hybrid discussion on Venezuela’s political future and its role in a changing region going into 2023. Please note that for this event, guests will have the option to join us in person at the Atlantic Council as a live studio audience or virtually via Zoom, YouTube, or Twitter.
