The Venezuelan regime has been under pressure for months, with a lower price for oil and with political dissent. Our expert speaker will discuss recent developments. 
Dr. Gabriel Aguilera, Associate Professor of International Security Studies, joined the Air War College faculty in 2011, where he directs the core course, United States National Security and Decision Making. He teaches and lectures on global security, international political economy, and Latin American studies. He serves on the college’s curriculum integration team that supervises all core courses taught at the Air War College and directs military instructor development in his department.

Dr. Aguilera’s research and publications have explored democratization, the politics of banking regulation, and financial crises in Latin America. He has published research and essays in scholarly journals and magazines, including comparative politics as well as edited volumes. Currently, he is editing his manuscript, The Politics of Banking Crises in Latin America During the 1990s. His new research studies how democratization is affecting civilian control of Mexico’s armed forces.

He has been a full-time Assistant Professor at the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico (ITAM) in Mexico City and California State University, Chico where he directed the International Relations Program. He has also been a Visiting Scholar at ITAM and the Claremont Graduate School as well as Adjunct Professor at Scripps College, Occidental College, and Chapman University.

Dr. Aguilera received his Ph.D. and master's degrees in political science from Harvard University, master’s degree in international affairs from the University of California at San Diego’s school of global policy and strategy, and bachelor’s in political science from Stanford University.
