 “Nicaragua: Revolution and Restoration”

Featuring

Dr. Richard Feinberg

Professor of International Political Economy,

School of Global Policy & Strategy (GPS),

UC San Diego

 

Since his election in 2007, Daniel Ortega has gradually restored autocratic rule to Nicaragua.  This April, a student rebellion quickly gained the support of much of civil society and organized business.  Ortega’s security forces responded by shooting hundreds of protesters. The international community reacted with outrage, but so far Ortega stands tough even as the economy spirals downward.  Prof. Feinberg, who recently visited the country, will address the question: What can be done to avoid a deepening tragedy for the long-suffering Nicaraguan people?
