Cuban symposium

Free and open to the public, the symposium will compare the current experiences of Cuban communities in Western Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

“As many as 300,000 Cubans currently live outside Cuba and the United States, especially in Spain, Venezuela, and Mexico, as well as in Puerto Rico,” said Cuban Research Institute Director Jorge Duany. “In recognition of the growing complexity and multiple locations of contemporary Cuban migrants, CRI proposes to explore their new travel routes and destinations in various parts of the world.”
