Cuba is witnessing profound change. The COVID-19 pandemic and the political changes in Cuba (with Miguel Díaz-Canel as president since 2018) and the United States (with the Trump and Biden administrations promoting a different stance on Cuba from Obama's) are dramatically redesigning the social, political, and economic reality on the island. This shifting environment positions Cuba as an ideal site to explore issues related to socialism, economic transformation, race relations, gender and sexuality, illicit/informal economies, poverty, food security and environmental risk, and urban challenges and planning as they unfold. The objective of the Cuba IFP is to provide you with a unique research-oriented experience in which lectures and interactions with your peers from different countries provide you with a more in-depth understanding of global problems at play in a specific context.
