Resumen

BUXTON, Julia. Venezuela: Deeper into the Abyss. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2018, vol.38, n.2, pp.409-428. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0718-090x2018000200409.

Fissures between the ruling Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela (PSUV) and its grassroots base widened amid disaffection with the dismal economic performance of President Nicolás Maduro's government and the trend of militarization in his administration. Economic crisis and chronic insecurity accelerated migration. Opposition strategies of violent protest resumed as the executive continued to bypass the opposition-controlled legislature. Long-term divisions within the Mesa de la Unidad Democrática (MUD) alliance over strategies for removing the government prevented the opposition from capitalizing on social discontent. The rift between parties supporting electoral approaches and more radical perspectives pressing for the overthrow of the government were replicated among external actors, whose interventions aggravated rather than alleviated political tensions.

Palabras clave : conflict; dialogue; economic crisis; National Constituent Assembly.
