Preparing for the Day After in Venezuela


The Trump Administration and the international community are focused on helping Venezuelans dislodge Nicholas Maduro from power and install Juan Guaido in the presidential palace.  Guaido, the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly, is recognized by the United States and some 50 other countries as the legitimate leader of Venezuela.

Even though it is the focus of the moment, removing Maduro will not be the end of the process of recovery in Venezuela; it will only be the beginning. And, as hard as it has been to dislodge Maduro, the aftermath of the transition of power will be even more difficult, and the United States and its allies in the region must have a workable plan today for when that moment arrives.
