Augusto De Venanzi Invited for Panel Discussion

populism_flyer_9FebThe School of Global and International Studies at IU Bloomington invited Augusto De Venanzi, professor of sociology, to participate in a panel discussion titled “Turning Away from Populism? The Elections in Argentina and Venezuela.”

The discussion focused on what effects the recent opposition victories in those countries may have on their populist policies.

“My hypothesis is that the landslide victory of the opposition in this election is mostly the result of the limits the actual government faces to engage in populist practices,” said De Venanzi. “These limits are dictated by the dramatic fall in the price of crude oil in the international markets.”

The discussion took place February 9 in Bloomington.
