(p.16) 1 The Logic of Venezuelan Foreign Policy during the Chávez Period
Venezuela's Petro-Diplomacy

Harold A. Trinkunas

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the logic of Venezuela's foreign policy under the Chávez administration and assesses its prospects for success or failure, drawing upon the existing literature on the foreign policy behavior of states in Latin America to provide a context for understanding Venezuela's international behavior. The chapter shows how Venezuela's behavior has been shaped by these constraints, exploring both realist and identity-based explanations for what has been observed during the Chávez administration. In its concluding section the chapter examines the implications for U.S. policy in Latin America.
