The crisis in Venezuela and the fate of “socialism in the 21st century”

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the state of the movement in Venezuela? What is Socialism of the 21st Century? How has the death of Hugo Chávez affected the fate of the socialist project, if at all? This talk will try to highlight the latest developments in Venezuela, the origins of the Bolivarian Process, and whether or not revolutionary socialists should be looking at the model of Socialism of the 21st Century as a new way forward.
