Abstract | Full Text

This article is an approach to understand the external cultural actions of the Venezuelan government and its connections with the internal cultural policies that the country has developed since 1999. Official documents show that these policies have been mostly oriented to defend the “native nations”, the community life and national history remembrance, and to support the ruling political ideology. Some of the actions may not be helpful when it comes to attaining the objectives set by cultural diplomacy theory.
