February 9, 2011, 12:00 - 2:00 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Hudson Institute's Center for Latin American Studies and the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis held a discussion on
Social Unrest and Political Instability in Venezuela
February 9, 12:00-2:00 PM
During the past week, the turmoil in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, and Algeria may bring about significant changes in the political landscape of the Arab world. The protests and violence may result in fundamental changes as well as in repercussions for the U.S. and allies in the region and beyond.
Significantly, the possible downfall of some of the region's longest-standing rulers could have ramifications as far as the Western hemisphere, where public unrest continues to grow in Hugo Chavez's Venezuela. Will the public see the situation in Egypt and Yemen as the impetus to move against Chavez's regime? Will Chavez preemptively crack down further on opposition in light of the continued riots thousands of miles away?
The Center for Latin American Studies held a discussion of these and other questions featuring a distinguished panel of experts.
