12/17 in the history of Cuban-US Relations: Causes, Results, Repercussions

February 20th, 2015
4 PM

Greeleaf Conference Room
100A Jones Hall

Dr. Carlos Alzugaray Treto, of the Asociación de Escritores, Unión de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba (UNEAC) and Consejo Editorial Revista Temas, will present a talk entitled: “12/17 in the history of Cuban-US Relations: Causes, Results, Repercussions.”

On December 17 Presidents Raúl Castro and Barack Obama announced that they had reached several agreements as a result of 18 months of secret negotiations. The general purpose of that agreement is to normalize relations between the two countries. Although long overdue, these agreements surprised every independent observer because of their swiftness and scope. They point to a new stage in the relationship between these two close neighbors. Dr. Alzugaray will analyze the causes, results and repercussions of what was agreed on from a Cuban perspective.

Sponsored by the Center for Inter-American Policy & Research (CIPR) and the Cuban and Carribean Studies Institute (CCSI).

The talk is free and open to the public.
