Doctoral candidate on why U.S.-backed Venezuelan aid harkens back to a dark history | PRI’s The World

March 1, 2019

Kelsey Gilman, a Jackson School doctoral candidate, examines the history of U.S. aid in Venezuela in an article titled “Why US-backed aid to Venezuela harkens back to dark history of covert operations.”

“The standoff over American aid harkens back to a sordid history of US intervention and “democracy promotion” in Latin America, which has been fraught with links to human rights abuses,” Gilman writes.
