Bringing an end to the futile fifty-year effort to isolate Cuba.
This blog is a part of the Center for International Policy’s Cuba Project, which seeks to bring an end to the futile fifty-year effort to isolate Cuba, and to bring us a few steps closer to the day when these two neighbors, united by history and geography, can have normal diplomatic relations. The United States’ policy toward Cuba is one of the last vestiges of the Cold War, and our policy toward Cuba is now not only obsolete but actually counterproductive in terms of real U.S. interests and objectives.
Among the areas the Cuba Project has identified where the United States and Cuba can cooperate to the benefit of both are defending against hurricanes and protecting the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the project strongly supports liberalized travel to Cuba as another significant avenue for engagement. We expect that the demonstrable benefits to both nations of such engagement and cooperation will encourage leaders in the United States and Cuba to move further in this direction.
