Authors: JOSEPH HUMIRE

August 2017 — Venezuela has started to garner international attention as the country’s political situation continues to deteriorate, shining a spotlight on the oft-neglected country and its internal unrest.The U.S. tendency to overlook Latin America in formulating foreign policy has resulted in a void of accurate information on Venezuela and the region. SFS stays committed to providing up-to-date reporting and has consistently emphasized the importance of Venezuela and Latin America to U.S. foreign policy and national security. Our field research and detailed analysis is carefully constructed so that U.S. policymakers can count on a proper threat assessment.
