David Smilde, a senior fellow at the Washington Office on Latin America and professor of Sociology at Tulane University, spoke to The Washington Post about Vice-President Pence’s diplomatic efforts in returning democracy to Venezuela. In it, Smidle stresses that Vice President Pence must assure allies in Central and South America that “the United States respects their diplomatic efforts and will not engage in unilateral measures that are guaranteed to be counterproductive.” Read the full story here.

Dr. Smilde also contributed an op-ed piece in the New York Times titled How to Avoid Civil War in Venezuela earlier this summer.
