FULLY BOOKED: The Venezuelan Exodus

  • IPU Room, IPU Room, Westminster Hall, 3 St Margaret St, Westminster, London

A joint event with the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Latin America Since 2015, at least 3 million Venezuelan people (around one in 12 of the population) have been forced to emigrate – driven by the pressures of Venezuela’s collapsing economy and deteriorating political conditions. It is the largest displacement of people in recent Latin American history.

Canning House will present a panel of experts to discuss the impact of this humanitarian crisis on Venezuela and its neighbouring countries: Juan Andrés Mejía, Deputy to the Venezuelan National Assembly (who will participate remotely), Diego Moya-Ocampos, Principal Political Risk Analyst at IHS Markit, and Dr Alejandro Arenas-Pinto, Senior Clinical Research Associate at UCL’s Institute for Global Health.

The event will be chaired by Graham Jones MP, Chair of the APPG for Venezuela.
With welcoming words from Mark Menzies MP, Chair of the APPG for Latin America, and Cristina Cortes, CEO of Canning House.

This event is free to attend.
