Venezuela in 2023 and Beyond: Charting a New Course
Refresh your browser window if stream does not start automatically.
“Venezuela in 2023 and Beyond: Charting a New Course,” a new report by the Latin American Program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, urges strong international support for negotiations between Venezuela’s authoritarian government and the democratic opposition to open the way to humanitarian relief, the release of political prisoners, economic recovery, and the gradual return of democracy and peaceful coexistence.
The analysis is the latest report from the Wilson Center’s Venezuela Working Group, comprising leading scholars and former senior government officials from several countries. It describes the negotiations in Mexico City as a fraught but potential turning point in the prolonged political stalemate that has led to the worst migration crisis in modern history in this region. “The talks and potential agreements are unlikely to produce a rapid transfer of power,” the report’s author, Abraham F. Lowenthal, writes, but they could improve the daily lives of millions of Venezuelans and begin rebuilding the country’s fractured institutions.
On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program and Chatham House of London hosted a virtual conversation on the Venezuela negotiations and the role of the international community.

The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin American Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. The Program provides insightful and actionable research for policymakers, private sector leaders, journalists, and public intellectuals in the United States and Latin America. To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.
