FIU in DC: Venezuela: From UNGA Commitments to a Global Action Plan
This is a past event.
Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Atlantic Council Headquarters, 12th Floor 1030 15th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005
Venezuela is front-and-center at the United Nations annual meetings in New York. On Monday, in a significant step, governments party to the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) overwhelmingly voted to invoke it. But what happens if inaction settles in post-UNGA? What is clear is that a deepening of the crisis would trigger new, even more concerning reverberations across Latin America, the Caribbean, the United States, Europe, and beyond.
To seize the moment for renewed attention to the rapidly-deteriorating situation in Venezuela, the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, in partnership with Foreign Policy Magazine and Florida International University’s Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy, invite you to a post-UNGA discussion on how the international community is likely to coordinate a global action plan to avert further threats to regional and global stability.
