Book Launch: 'Cuba under Raul Castro: Assessing the Reforms'
Thursday, 13 June 2013 from 17:30 to 19:30 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
'Cuba Under Raul Castro: Assessing the Reforms' is a comprehensive and thoroughly documented analysis of Raul Castro' government in 2006-2012: the domestic economy, international economic relations and social welfare. The core of the book describes Castro's structural economic-social reforms and evaluates their effects. Key questions answered are: which were the causes of the reforms; which has been successful and which not and why; how effective have the reforms been in coping with Cuba's problems; what obstacles the reforms face; and would R. Castro be able to complete the reforms in his last five-year term in office.
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
