- Crise na Venezuela
Given that Venezuela seems unable to overcome its internal divisions alone, external actors will be vital in influencing how the crisis unfolds. Yet the crisis has erupted at a moment when Latin American government's interest and capacity to engage in Venezuela are limited. While the Maduro government has fewer regional allies than his predecessor Hugo Chávez could count on, governments in the region are doing litle to defend democratic governance in Venezuela. Despite much pro-democracy rhetoric and some meditation efforts, they seem content to let Venezuela find its own way out of the crisis - whether this means an abrupt collapse of the authoritarian government or a prolongation of its increasingly heavy-handed rule.
