Venezuela finds itself at an inflection point. While the push for free and fair elections in Venezuela faces obstacles, the opposition remains engaged in negotiations with the government as it prepares for presidential primaries in October ahead of the 2024 presidential and 2025 regional elections. Meanwhile, the election cycle in the United States raises further questions about the direction of the US government’s Venezuela policy. Amid this landscape, key actors in Latin America and the European Union are voicing interest in a coordinated multilateral response.

Join the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, Chatham House, and The Inter-American Dialogue in-person or virtually on September 18, 2023 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET for a panel discussion that will address the broader implications of Venezuela’s crisis ahead of a crucial year for the country, while laying out the possibilities and challenges for a democratic path forward for both Venezuelans and the international community.
