schema:description"In April 2002, Venezuela appeared to be on the brink of civil war. The Venezuelan military removed President Hugo Chavez Frias from power and reinstalled him after an outpouring of support from the Venezuelan people and after condemnations from the international community. Feeling vulnerable and shocked by the coup, President Chavez took an unusual step to defuse a social and political conflict. He invited Jimmy Carter and later Organization of American States and United Nations Development Programme to facilitate a dialog between Venezuelan government and its opposition, a dialog that lasted two years (2002-004). This book analyzes effort of the Carter Center and the broader international community to prevent violent conflict, to reconcile a deeply divided society, and to preserve democratic processes. As facilitators of the intervention and representatives of the Carter Center, Jennifer McCoy and Francisco Diez present an insider account of mediation at national and international level. They describe historical roots and nature of the conflict and provide insight to the main domestic actors. Their book analyzes Carter Center's interventions at the elite level as facilitators of multiple negotiations; peace-building initiatives the Center promoted together with many Venezuelans; and involvement of international community. The book examines missed opportunities and unintended consequences of many interventions and identifies lessons learned."@en
