dc.description.abstractThis thesis analyzes the changing relationship between the United States and Venezuela since 1980. In the last five years this relationship has become increasingly strained. The thesis takes a holistic approach and looks at international, domestic, and individual levels of analysis to determine the causal factors in Venezuelaαs shifting foreign policy. The findings suggest that the new international environment and Venezuelaαs petroleum reserves create the ability for Venezuela to slow integration with the United States. Domestic factors explain this approach as an attempt to protect different interest groups. At the individual level, President ChaÌ vez is a headline grabber but is not a significant source of bilateral tensions. The findings indicate that Venezuelan political and economic culture heavily impact Venezuelaαs actions in the international environment and hence its relationship with the United States.en_US
