Fen Osler Hampson, a CIGI distinguished fellow and director of its Global Security & Politics program, appeared on the BBC World Service's "Newsday" radio program to discuss the Lima Group's role in resolving the crisis in Venezuela:

"The Lima Group is going to be focusing on keeping pressure on the Maduro regime to relinquish power," said Hampson. "It will also be looking at some of the pressing humanitarian needs that both Venezuelans inside the country are facing, but also Venezuelans who have been forced to flee the country."
