Venezuela's Cocaine Revolution Met With Uproar


On May 4, InSight Crime launched its latest investigation, Venezuela’s Cocaine Revolution¸ accompanied by a virtual panel on its findings. The takeaways from this three-year effort, including the fact that Venezuela has evolved from a transit country to a cocaine producer, immediately became a major topic of discussion among Venezuelan and Colombian media. 

InSight Crime Co-director Jeremy McDermott was interviewed by Blu Radio and NTN24 in Colombia, while numerous other leading publications analyzed the findings of the report. 

The panel discussing the investigation featured contributions by Sebastiana Barráez, a leading Venezuelan investigative journalist, Angélica Durán-Martínez, a professor of political science and Latin American expert at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell and Javier Mayorca, a Venezuelan crime investigator. A summary of the panel is available here
