Cuba: Challenges for U.S. Policymakers in 2021 [February 22, 2021]   [open pdf - 647KB]

From the Document: "Among the challenges facing the Biden Administration and the 117th Congress is the future direction of U.S. policy toward Cuba. Most observers expect the Biden Administration to shift policy to focus on engagement and away from the numerous sanctions imposed by the Trump Administration. During the U.S. election campaign, then-candidate Joe Biden said he would reverse the 'failed Trump polices that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people and done nothing to advance democracy and human rights.' Both the White House and the State Department maintain that U.S. policy toward Cuba is to be governed by two principles: one grounded in support for democracy and human rights; and one recognizing that Americans, especially Cuban Americans, are the best ambassadors for advancing freedom and prosperity in Cuba."
