Arnold August will talk about his book Cuba and its Neighbours - Democracy in Motion. In this book, Arnold August explores Cuba’s unique form of democracy, presenting a detailed analysis of the country’s electoral process and the state’s functioning between elections. Comparing the Cuban system with practices in the US, Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador, he describes Cuba as a laboratory where the process of democratization is continually in motion, and argues for better understanding, avoiding either blanket condemnation or idealistic political illusions.
