Cuba and the United States in the World: US and Latin America at the Dawn of the Century

Emerging From Conflict Conference
February 21-23, 2002
Havana, Cuba

Conference Description

This conference is part of a project organized by the Stanley Foundation's Emerging From Conflict program in cooperation with the Instituto Superior de Relaciones Internacionales (ISRI), the international relations research and training arm of Cuba's Ministry of External Relations. The project consists of a series of three conferences that have brought together Cuban and American foreign policy specialists to discuss major international issues facing both countries. The first meeting—held in St. Paul Minnesota, in 2000—focused on Cuban and US perspectives on military and humanitarian intervention. The second meeting—held in South Carolina in 2001—focused on the issue of unilateral and multilateral economic sanctions as a foreign policy tool. This meeting—the third and final in the series—focuses on the United States and Cuba within the broader context of Latin America.

Dr. Raymond D. Duvall, professor of political science at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Roberto González Gómez, senior professor and head of the department of politics at the ISRI, co-organized this conference in consultation with Dr. Sherry Gray, program officer at the Stanley Foundation.
