He is visiting the U.K. to deliver a series of talks about current processes of social change in Venezuela.
In this final HCRI Speaker Series of semester 2, Rafa talks about some of the key changes in Venezuela since the start of the "Bolivarian Revolution" in 1998 and discusses state- grassroots collaboration in the pursuit of "Socialism for the 21st Century". He also provides a personal reflection on the current unrest in the country.
