Abstract:

In the 33 years since the Cuban revolution, U.S. foreign policy toward Cuba has remained virtually unchanged. Now that Communism in the Soviet Union is dead and Cuban-Soviet relations are weak, its time for the United States to revisit its foreign policy toward Cuba. To understand how current policy was developed, this research paper presents the following 1 a chronology of U.S. foreign policy toward Cuba, 2 a brief history of Cuba through today, 3 an explanation of Cubas leadership structure, 4 an illustration of the current changing environment, and 5 a number of factors that must be considered before the formulation of a new foreign policy. The paper presents three alternative policies and their advantages and disadvantages. He then recommends a new policy that would ease pressures, lift the embargo, and improve information flow between the United States and Cuba.
