POLITICS / STATE
- Student Work
The Cuban political singularities had not been indifferent to the rest of the world since their final emancipation 61 years ago. The island created a stable and robust enclave, openly communist and anti-imperialist, 90 miles away from the US, its former colonizer and perhaps the most notorious representative of the capitalist system. During this time, just three people, belonging to only one Communist Party, have led the country. This fact has continuously called into question the Cuban democratic character and its human rights situation. In this context, the US has maintained an economic embargo typical of the Cold War logic, which has put the island in a problematic situation, especially after the USSR‘s disappearance. After the recent end of the Castro brothers‘ era, both leaders of the Cuban Revolution, there has been speculation about the country‘s political direction with the arrival in 2019 of its new president Miguel Diaz-Canel and the new Constitution accepted by popular referendum a year before. However, all these elements that make Cuba unique in political terms remain more than valid.
