UCL-Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) is truly honored to welcome Professor Carmelo Mesa-Lago (Pittsburgh) for the launch of this, his latest book.

'Cuba Under Raul Castro: Assessing the Reforms' is a comprehensive and thoroughly documented analysis of Raul Castro' government in 2006-2012: the domestic economy, international economic relations and social welfare. The core of the book describes Castro's structural economic-social reforms and evaluates their effects. Key questions answered are: which were the causes of the reforms; which has been successful and which not and why; how effective have the reforms been in coping with Cuba's  problems; what obstacles the reforms face; and would R. Castro be able to complete the reforms in his last five-year term in office.

Attendance to this event is free of charge but registration is required. Professor Mesa-Lago will also participate in the conference 'Report on the Americas: Economies in Flux', to take place at UCL-Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) on June 14. Please visit this event's page for further details.
