INTERNATIONAL FORUM: "Chavismo without Chávez? Reflections on the Venezuelan crisis one year after the death of Santo Hugo"
On the eve of the one-year anniversary of the death of Hugo Chávez, History professor Steve Lewis will reflect on what has been a very long year in Venezuela. Chávez's hand-picked successor, Nicolás Maduro, has stumbled badly. After barely winning election in April, he has been unable to respond to Venezuela's deepening economic crisis. While Chavistas turn their fallen hero into a cult figure, even some of the faithful are beginning to express doubts about President Maduro's leadership.
