FUNAG holds conference on Venezuela – from crisis to conflict: implications for the region

On December 4, 2019, the Alexandre de Gusmão Foundation (FUNAG) held a conference on Venezuela – from crisis to conflict: implications for the region, with journalist and author Leonardo Coutinho.

In his presentation, Coutinho explained how former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez (1999-2003) led the country to collapse. He also addressed the consequences of “21st century socialism” not only for Venezuela, but for the region and the world.

Leonardo Coutinho is the author of Hugo Chávez – o espectro: como o presidente venezuelano alimentou o narcotráfico, financiou o terrorismo e promoveu a desordem global, a result of years of investigative journalism, over one hundred interviews, and thousands of pages of public and classified official documents.
