Public Opinion and Venezuelan Foreign Policy

Public Opinion and Venezuelan Foreign Policy

(p.49) 3 Public Opinion and Venezuelan Foreign Policy
Venezuela's Petro-Diplomacy

John Magdaleno G.

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses public opinion about Hugo Chávez's Venezuelan foreign policy. Venezuela's foreign policy has been asserted by many to constitute a positive effort by the Venezuelan government to market its image internationally. The chapter looks at the impact of this strategy on target audiences. Public opinion of Venezuela's foreign policy highlighted growing challenge for the Chávez government. A stronger government effort to earn a more favorable perception among key international actors, requiring the use of even more resources, was carried out. The chapter takes into account the influence of factors such as the attempted international reach of the “Bolivarian revolution”; the growing influence of the Venezuelan state in Latin America; domestic challenges such as security, inflation, food shortages; and a rise in social protests on internal costs of foreign policy in Venezuela.

Keywords:   public opinion, Venezuela, foreign policy, Bolivarian revolution, internal costs, domestic challenges
