In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we discuss the continuing political, economic, and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela with Cynthia Arnson, director of the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program.  Are Nicolás Maduro’s domestic and foreign allies beginning to waver in their support and how could the politicization of humanitarian aid affect the Venezuelan population?
