Dr Sanchez-Urribarri can discuss:

  • Latin American politics 
  • Elections; Foreign Policy; Legal Issues in Latin America 

Quotes attributable to Dr Sanchez Urribarri:

"The next critical point is in about two weeks, when the opposition will probably decide whether they back an opposition candidate different from the one elected in primaries (barred from running), with the U.S. also making announcements regarding the sanctions regime in the coming days in response to the government’s moves regarding the election.

"It will be a very challenging phase leading up to the presidential election."
