CLALS member, Dr. Jennifer McCoy, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, was quoted in an online New York  Times article about Venezuela’s new acting president, Nicolas Maduro.

“Chávez was a master at addressing very different interests and holding them together as the undisputed leader,” said Jennifer McCoy, the Americas program director at the Carter Center in Atlanta. “Maduro has the temperament to talk to different people, and he can be quite reasonable and pragmatic. But he will need all his negotiating skills to manage the competing ideas and interests within the movement.”
