Title Isolated from the West, close to Eurasia: Venezuela, Covid-19 and the pospandemic global order
Aislada de Occidente y cercana a Eurasia: Venezuela frente a la Covid-19 y el orden global pospandemia
Creator Briceño Ruiz , José
Subject Venezuela
Description The objective of this paper is to analyze the international strategy developed by the regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela to address its internal limitations in the response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It argues that in the context of an economic crisis and international isolation, Maduro’s government needs the aid of China and Russia, two revisionist powers, to deal with the pandemic. Beyond that, however, Venezuela’s policy has also involved a positioning in favor of Russia and China in the struggle to build a new global order. This process has been accelerated by the pandemic and Venezuela has adopted the position of a revolutionary state that has signed up to the demands for a new global order set out by the two revisionist powers.
El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la estrategia internacional desarrollada por el régimen de Nicolás Maduro (2013- ) en Venezuela para enfrentar las limitaciones internas en el tratamiento de la pandemia de la Covid-19. Se argumenta que, ante la crisis económica y el aislamiento internacional, el gobierno de Maduro necesita la ayuda de China y Rusia, dos potencias revisionistas, para garantizar el tratamiento de la pandemia. Sin embargo, más allá de eso, la política de Venezuela ha implicado un posicionamiento a favor de Rusia y China en la lucha por la construcción de un nuevo orden global. Este proceso se ha acelerado por la pandemia y Venezuela ha adoptado la posición de un Estado revolucionario que se ha sumado a las demandas de estas dos potencias revisionistas respecto a un nuevo orden global.
