14/03/2019 - Professors in the Pub: Venezuela

Ibero-American Centre of the Metropolitan University Prague in cooperation with the Anglo-American University AAU’s School of International Relations and Diplomacy would like to invite you to this month's Professors in the Pub on the topic of the situation in Venezuela.

WHEN: 14 March 2019 from 6:30 PM

WHERE: Café des Taxis, Letenská 120/5, Prague 1

Event is open to all.

Political, economic, and humanitarian crises have been building up in Venezuela for years. Now, events appear to be coming to a head with Maduro’s regime on one side and Guaidó and the reformers on the other. The division in Venezuela has also divided the world, with different powers supporting the different leaders. What is it like to live in contemporary Venezuela? What are the daily struggles faced by common citizens? What are the roots of the current crisis, and what does the future look like? What are the possible solutions and the implications of those solutions for Venezuela, the region, and the world? Come discuss these questions and ask your own.

The lead professors will be Kateřina Březinová, Head of the Ibero-American Centre and lecturer at Metropolitan University Prague, and Lucia Argüellová, Head of the Latin American Human Rights Program at People in Need (Člověk v tísni) and member of the Ibero-American Centre at Metropolitan University Prague.

Come to Café Des Taxis to have a drink and discussion with your professors and other experts about important events happening in the world. Share your questions and your views, and join the long tradition of politics in the pub.
