After 2 years of virtual meetings, the Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy will be meeting in person fr its 32nd annual conference. The theme this year is "Cuba--What is Happening?"
I am sure I do not have the answer. Perhaps you do. The call for papers and panels follows. Please consider participating. I am hoping to present the paper "Cuba and the Changing Environment: A Focus on Environmental Measures and Beyond.”
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS and PANEL PROPOSALS
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 changed 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 environment 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 cosponsoring 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.
Abstracts or panel proposals should describe original work related to Cuba’s economy in a broad sense, including legal, sectoral, and social aspects of economic development, or Cuba’s exodus and the Cuban diaspora and its economic and social relationship to the island
Abstracts or panel proposals must not exceed 250 words and must be accompanied by a 150-word biography for each author. For consideration by the Program Committee, abstracts, panel proposals, biographies, or full papers should be sent via email to:
