Join us for a talk with Dr. Verónica Zubillaga where we will be discussing her recent work on armed conflict in Venezuela. During the conversation, moderated by Rebecca Hanson, we will ask: How and why has armed violence changed over the course of the Bolivarian Revolution? What does it mean to talk about criminal governance in the context of an authoritarian state? And what implications do the answers to these questions have for Venezuela's future?
