About

Cuba is witnessing profound change. The economic overhaul begun by Raul Castro in 2010; the end of the charismatic leadership of Fidel (1959-2008) and, later, Raul Castro (2008-2018) that came with the election of Miguel Díaz-Canel to the presidency in 2018; and the troubled diplomatic relationships with the Trump administration counterbalanced by the strengthening of ties with the EU are redefining the meaning of the Cuban Revolution in its 60th anniversary.This shifting environment positions Cuba as an ideal site to explore issues related to socialism, economic transformations, race relations, gender and sexuality, informal economies, poverty, food security, and urban 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. Studying the emergence of neoliberal practices in an allegedly market-less economy, of class and race disparity in a purportedly classless and post-racial society, and of gender equality in a highly gendered reality — these are some of the building blocks of a political grammar the Havana IFP will provide you with in order to ideally make you better citizens of your own country.
