I am delighted to announce that registration is now open for Cuba From the Castros to COVID: An ASCE Virtual Conference, which is scheduled to take place August 13-15, 2020.

Concept Note

The Concept Note provides an overview of the themes that will be explored during the three days of the virtual conference. You are invited to engage with the Concept Note; please send us your comments, questions, statements and the like, and we will be happy to post them as appropriate.

These may be accessed via CPE YouTube Channel (or QR Code). Follow the link above for the listing of all interviews and links to your favorites.
The Conference Program may be accessed HERE. The Conference extends over three days and offers six exciting events. They include four panels: They include (1) The Cuban Economy and Prospects after COVID-19; (2) The Cuba Venezuela Relationship; (3) “Destrabando” the Cuban Economy: An Assessment of Reforms and the Road Ahead; and (4) a Roundtable on Developments in Moving Beyond Cuba’s Dual Currency System. In addition, we are delighted to host the annual Carlos Diaz Alejandro Lecture. This year’s lecturer is Alejandro de la Fuente, Harvard University, who will speak to “Racism with Equality? Measuring Racial Inequality in Cuba, 1980-2010.” Lastly we continue with our tradition of highlighting the work of undergraduate and graduate students. As in prior years (but this time virtually) ASCE will present a panel of the winners of the ASCE student paper competition.

Registration is required but free; space is limited.  Registration permits the user to attend any combination of the six Conference events. Those wishing to attend all events, for example, must register for all six. Those wishing to attend fewer events may register for those panels of interest to them. Please contact us with questions. Attendance for each event requires a separate registration.
