One country. Two leaders. Juan Guaido declaring himself to be interim president on January 23rd of this year acted as an electroshock to Venezuela. The waves spread quickly around the world, as state governments and other entities sided either with the young head of the national parliament and leader of the opposition or with the controversially re-elected president Nicolas Maduro. European countries also had to take sides. Or so it seems.

Come join us in Kent 405 at 8pm to discuss answers to these questions and more during our third European Wednesday of the Spring Semester !
