The United States and Cuba: A New Policy of Engagement

The Center for Democracy in the Americas and the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) cordially invite you to Mapping Out Change: The United States and Cuba: A New Policy of Engagement.  

On December 17, 2020, the Center for Democracy in the Americas (CDA) and the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) released a roadmap for change in U.S. policy toward Cuba. The report, The United States and Cuba: A New Policy of Engagement, provides recommendations and a timeline for how the Biden-Harris administration could adopt a more constructive approach to U.S.-Cuba relations. The carefully researched set of policy proposals were developed through a consultative process with a wide range of analysts and experts on U.S.-Cuban relations and was shared with officials in the Biden transition team.

The roadmap lays out a series of sequenced recommendations in three sections: “Repairing the Damage: The First Nine Months,” “Taking the Initiative: The Second Year,” and “Finishing the Job: A Legislative Agenda,” detailing how the Biden-Harris administration can move quickly to implement much-needed change in U.S.-Cuba policy.

As the administration begins to define its foreign policy approach, WOLA and CDA are hosting an educational event intended to lay out the main policy recommendations of the report, and explain how these policies advance the interests of both the United States and the Cuban people.
