Coding and decoding: The state of Venezuelan civil society
Venezuelans have historically been inclined to perceive the state as responsible for the solution to all their needs, and therefore to give in to clientelism. The result, which came out of the CIVICUS Civil Society Index (CSI) report, illustrates why most CSOs in the country are affected by a model in which autonomous intermediate organisations are not considered by authorities as legitimate interlocutors.

Inclusion of a publication does not imply ownership or endorsement by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED); rather, these are publications that the Democracy Resource Center believes would be of interest to NED staff and others interested in democracy promotion.
