Cuba in the Twenty-First Century

January 1, 2010—January 9, 2015

Director: Julia E. Sweig, Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow for Latin America Studies and Director for Latin America Studies

The Latin America Program's Cuba in the Twenty-First Century project follows Cuba's evolution as political turnover and economic reforms transform the social, economic, and political contract that has been in place over the last century in Cuba. The program also follows the evolution of foreign engagement with Cuba, and of Cuban foreign policy, while tracking key issues in the U.S.-Cuba relationship and exploring common environmental and scientific challenges and opportunities. Cuba in the Twenty-First Century carries out research, outreach, and publication—including Julia Sweig's book Cuba: What Everyone Needs to Know—as well as the ongoing Cuba in the Twenty-First Century roundtable series.
