Chavez's Win? Venezuela Post Election

After nearly 14 years in power, Hugo Chávez has been re-elected President once again. What does this outcome mean for the future of Venezuela? Will there be long-reaching global ramifications as a result of the election?

Hudson’s Center for Latin American Studies—in conjunction with the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis—held a timely and important analysis of the recent Venezuelan election, and what it means for U.S. policymakers.

Hudson Institute is grateful to the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation for their generous support of this event.
