Tonight in Miami, USA: U.S. Cuba Policy and the Cuban-American
The Center for International Policy in collaboration with the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies, Florida International University (FIU) & the Greater Miami Chapter of the ACLU
Invite you to a discussion of
U.S. Cuba Policy and the Cuban-American
Thursday, October 4, 2012
4:00 - 7:30 p.m.
1508 S.W. 8th Street
Recent U.S. regulations have allowed for unlimited Cuban-American travel and remittances to Cuba and increased "purposeful" travel by other citizens.
In two panels we will explore the effect of this opening in Miami and Cuba and examine how Florida voting influences U.S. Cuba policy and how it is likely to do so in the future.
