Deliberative Democracy in Cuba
Independent civil society in Cuba has been excluded from virtually all official governing processes for over 50 years. But with the U.S. lifting travel and commerce restrictions between the two nations and the recent death of Fidel Castro, Cuba is poised for continued political change.
Kenya Dworkin, associate professor of Hispanic Studies, is working together with Robert Cavalier, teaching professor of philosophy and director of Carnegie Mellon’s Program for Deliberative Democracy, to help facilitate this change.
