In April 2011 the first Cuban Communist Party Congress in over a decade agreed a programme of economic policy measures aimed at what it called the ‘updating of the Cuban socialist model’ heralding the most intensive and extensive change since the earliest days of the Revolution more than 50 years ago. In February 2012 the Communist Party is to meet again in a special conference to discuss and agree political reforms that are likely to be equally profound in their effect.
Just what are the prospects for Cuba and the Cuban socialist project in the 21st Century? How will these changes affect the trajectory of the revolution and it relationship with the wider world?
