Death of Hugo Chavez: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University Latin American politics expert Grace Jaramillo is available to talk about the career of Venezuela president Hugo Chavez and what his death means to the future of Venezuela.

Ms. Jaramillo is a teaching fellow at Queen’s University and a former professor at FLASCO University in Ecuador who recently taught a seminar of Hugo Chavez.

She says there are reasons to admire and dislike the presidency of Hugo Chavez.

“Hugo Chavez was very concerned with improving the conditions of the poor in Venezuela, but on the other hand, his international policies were very concerning, especially his relationship with Iran and Libya during the Gaddafi era,” says Ms. Jaramillo.
