The State we are in: Discussion about the Venezuela's approach to the land question

On the 11th of October, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation South Africa and the University of Pretoria hosted a seminar with the topic “The state we are in: Discussing Venezuela’s approach to the land question”. The presentations were delivered by two Venezuelan Members of Parliament: Miguel Pizarro and Dr. José Manuel Olivares of Primero Justicia. Venezuela has been going through one of the biggest man-made economic crisis in Latin America since the misled socialist politics of President Hugo Chavez, which includes land expropriation without compensation. At the same time in South Africa the topic of land expropriation without compensation is highly debated. The seminar facilitated a conversation between the two Venezuelans politicians and the delegates, most of whom were students and lecturers.
