The Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy’s Thirty-Second Annual Meeting
September 15 - September 17
ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF THE CUBAN ECONOMY (ASCE)
THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL MEETING
Cuba – What is Happening?
Plus, Cuba and the Environment
September 15-17, 2022
Cuba is convulsing through its monetary reform, the “ordenamiento” process, and an opening for small and medium enterprises. The Cuban government has long promised its people it would never apply economic shock therapy. The Cuban people might wonder what happened? Changes in economic policy came quickly and then change repeatedly. It has been hard to follow developments, but the difficulties the Cuban people have faced have been obvious. Politics has changed, the medical and educational systems are under stress and tourism may not return.
For the Thirty-Second Annual meeting of the Association, the ASCE Board has opened the agenda to papers on all aspects of the Cuban economy and the social/economic system. In previous conferences, ASCE’s program has included sessions organized around development issues; legal issues; U.S. policy towards Cuba; self-employment; tourism; agriculture; education; public health; social welfare; demographic issues; civil society; human rights; and environmental issues. If you have a good paper, we want it for the 2022 meeting!
We have a new addition this year as well. The Law School of Florida International University is co-sponsoring our conference. They will bring eight legal experts who will present papers at the conference. Some will focus on the environment. ASCE members who wish to write on the environmental topics related to Cuba are also welcome.
