Cuba: U.S. Policy Overview [Updated October 29, 2021]   [open pdf - 512KB]

From the Document: "Cuba remains a one-party authoritarian state with a government that has sharply restricted freedoms of expression, association, assembly, and other basic human rights since the early years of the 1959 Cuban revolution. [...] In its initial months, the Biden Administration announced it was conducting a review of policy toward Cuba. The White House press secretary said on March 9, 2021, that although a Cuba policy shift was not among the President's top priorities, the Administration was 'committed to making human rights a core pillar' of policy and would review policy decisions made in the prior administration, including the decision to designate Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism. Nevertheless, sanctions imposed under the Trump Administration remain in place."
