Sibylline Podcast - Nicaragua - Risk Of Unrest Remains Despite Reduction In Demonstrations

April 27, 2018

Widespread protests against changes to Nicaragua’s social security underscored the extent of tensions between President Daniel Ortega’s government and factions of the public. Although Ortega has since withdrawn reforms, the aggressive state response used to quell demonstrations will remain a likely driver of future unrest.

In this podcast, we are joined by CEO, Justin Crump, to discuss the current situation and implications of the protests within the region.


Key points include:

• How the protests exposed cracks in Ortega’s government
• ‘Leaderless’ nature of the demonstrations
• Post protest environment
• Revised US Travel Directives
• Nicaragua’s role in the region looking forward
