What type of democracy do we want in Venezuela? Have we reached a consensus about the institutional model that would allow us to coexist in peace and stability? What relationship is there between this possible democracy and the rentier model? What are the greatest challenges that we face in designing our future? “Toward a New Democracy” is the subject which will be addressed in this second virtual meeting of ‘Venezuela Speaks’, which will take place on Wednesday, February 10, in which Venezuelan political scientists Maryhen Jiménez (PhD from the University of Oxford) and Michael Penfold (PhD from Columbia University) will converse with journalist Eugenio Martínez about diverse themes relating to the construction of a new democracy. In this exchange, the panelists will address the role of the citizenry, the political parties and Venezuela’s diaspora population, the challenges posed by inequality, poverty, polarization, the fragility of the Venezuelan state and its authoritarian legacy.
This event will take place on Wednesday, February 10, at 3:00 p.m. EST via Zoom, with a simultaneous livestream transmitted by the Movimiento Ciudadano Dale Letra YouTube channel, as well as through Radio Fe y Alegría, Fedecámaras Radio, Radio Comunidad y Contrapunto Radio. Simultaneous interpretation from Spanish to English will be provided.
