Socialist Cuba is undergoing profound change. As the “historic generation” of the Revolution’s leaders is preparing its departure from center stage of politics, the island is in the midst of an ambivalent process of crisis and reform. Where is Cuba heading? What impact will the economic reforms have, and how far will they go? How much change is in store for US-Cuban relations after Obama’s historic visit this year? Cuban and international authors have addressed these and other questions in a recent issue of Third World Quarterly. The editors of this special section will present its key findings and discuss the perspectives of Cuba’s quest to re-define its political, social and economic model.
