WOLA’s Venezuelan Politics and Human Rights Blog Provides Reality-Based Analysis as Crisis Deepens in Venezuela

Over the past five years, WOLA’s Venezuelan Politics and Human Rights blog has provided analysis of unfolding events and of the deepening crisis in Venezuela. Since its creation, the blog has served as a unique resource for journalists, policymakers, scholars, advocates, and others.

This week, to mark the blog’s fifth anniversary, WOLA is launching a redesigned version of the blog that will provide better readability, while maintaining the same, high-quality content. The new blog can be found at www.venezuelablog.org. All readers who are currently subscribed to the blog will continue to receive notifications regarding new posts.

The re-launch of the WOLA blog comes at a critical moment in Venezuela. On July 30, the Venezuelan government is poised to hold elections for members of a new Constituent Assembly, with powers to rewrite the Venezuelan Constitution, a move that threatens to disempower Venezuelan citizens for years to come.

WOLA’s Venezuelan Politics and Human Rights blog, curated by WOLA Senior Fellow David Smilde, a leading Venezuela commentator, WOLA’s new Associate for Venezuela Geoff Ramsey, and others, provides crucial analysis of these recent developments and events to come in Venezuela. Recent posts include:
