Publications

In September 2022, Mr. Price finished a multi-year research project on Colombia and Venezuela and is now analysing his data and writing pieces up for publication. The timeline for publishing an academic piece can be upwards of two years, meaning that much of his work has not yet been published in peer-reviewed journals. With that being said, Mr. Price’s research is among the most up-to-date analyses of Colombia and Venezuela country conditions, especially given that many research projects were suspended in light of COVID-19. His expertise has been qualified and recognized in all cases he has worked on. Below are a list of his latest publications, as well as opinion pieces and conference presentations.
