Description/Abstract

The Conversation—an independent source of news and views from the academic and research community—features an article by SEBA Professor Marco Aponte on why the White House sanctions on Venezuela won’t be successful. In their story “Venezuela: Why Trump’s sanctions won’t work.” Aponte, an assistant professor of global business in the School of Economics and Business Administration, and his co-author Adjunct Professor Lance Lattig, point out that while U.S. sanctions are a condemnation of President Nicolas Maduro's authoritarian repression of democracy, they overlook two key problems: Russian meddling and the country's humanitarian crisis.
