WOLA Talks to NPR’s “Morning Edition” About Venezuela’s Department of Happiness

On Monday's Morning Edition, WOLA Senior Fellow David Smilde notes that Venezuelans may be justified in their concerns about the Department of Happiness, which many see as an alarming step toward greater government involvement in all aspects of Venezuelan life.

David Smilde is the moderator of WOLA's Venezuela Politics and Human Rights Blog, a unique resource for journalists, scholars, and activists which provides insights on the latest in Venezuela's politics.
