The Venezuelanalysis Podcast Episode 20: What Is Behind Sanctions Relief for Venezuela?

Our latest podcast episode looks at the US easing certain sanctions, the motivations and consequences in Venezuela's political chessboard.
Podcast sanctions relief
The VA team and Ociel López examine the implications of the suspension of certain coercive measures against Venezuela.

What is behind the decision by the US Treasury Department to suspend sanctions on Venezuela? Is it because of increased Venezuelan migration to the US? Is it owed to fears of wider instability in the Middle East? Or has the White House finally come to terms with the failure of the current regime-change strategy?

You won’t be surprised to learn that the answer is yes, to all of that, and more. In our latest podcast episode, host José Luis Granados Ceja is joined by fellow VA member Ricardo Vaz and political analyst Ociel López to break down Washington’s calculations, the potential impact of the licenses, and where the Venezuelan political chessboard factors in.
