Why do Venezuelans have to queue before shops? Why is there so much insecurity and inflation? Why is Venezuelan politics so polarised? We create a web-documentary that explains the history and logic of Venezuela’s problems!

The first set of videos tell the recent political history of Venezuela and how it got so polarised.

The next set of videos explain the economic history of Venezuela and the story behind its current economic woes.

Somewhere between a social scientist and a journalist, I currently work as a news editor for major Swiss newspapers and manage the program «Peace & Security» at the think tank foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy. In 2015 I founded the website elcontexto.org, where in 2016 friends and I published the first «open-source» documentary about Venezuela and short documentaries about Catalan separatism and ISIS. Originally, I'm an IT engineer, but I later studied International Relations (MA) at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) and Development and Peace Studies (BA) at University Of Bradford.

Democrat, Venezuelan, salsa enthusiast -- in that order. I also hold an M.A. in International Relations from IBEI in Spain and an M.S. in International Economics from the UCV in Venezuela. I spend much of my time scavenging through government documents to try to find out how the government wasted its largest revenue boom in history.
