"Cuba's Perplexing Change"--Call for Papers, 24th Annual Meeting Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy

The Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy has one of the most interesting and consistent scholarship on Cuba that is straightforward and devoid of a single and relentless political agenda--something rare in Cuban studies. Here for its Mission Statement. Twenty-three volumes of the Annual Proceedings have been published. They are widely used inside and outside of Cuba by universities, research centers, government agencies and others. the conferences have been quite interesting with sometimes lively debate and an increasing presence of scholars and others from Cuba.

The theme for the 24th Annual Conference of the ASCE is "Cuba's Perplexing Changes" which will focus on internal reforms and their impact on the Cuban economy, as well as on the island's international economic reorientation.  The Call for Papers (in English and Spanish) follows.
