While the corrupt Nicolás Maduro regime presides over a deteriorating economy and mass emigration, the Venezuelan democratic opposition is organizing to hold the dictator accountable ahead of planned elections in 2024. 

Please join Hudson Institute for a discussion with Venezuelan pro-democracy leader Leopoldo López on the situation in Venezuela, the growing alliance between authoritarian regimes, and the prospects for democracy in Venezuela and beyond. A former mayor of the municipality of Chacao, López is the founder and coordinator of the opposition party Voluntad Popular and co-founder of the World Liberty Congress. Since leaving Venezuela in 2020, he has lived in exile in Spain.
