Local development in Cuba from a higher education perspective
The place of local development issues in the country’s economic and social development model has changed drastically, especially in the last three years. Documents such as the Constitution of the Republic and the National Plan for Economic and Social Development 2030, together with the discourse, a set of approved policies and numerous actions by the government, clearly indicate that local...
Comportamiento del cumplimiento tributario de los trabajadores por cuenta propia en Cuba
The Municipal Office of Tax Administration of Santiago de Cuba faces a sustained growth in the level of tax debt of the sector of self-employed workers who pay taxes under the general regime. In this paper, the factors that have the greatest influence on the behaviour of tax compliance in this segment of taxpayers are examined. Surveys were applied to selected experts from the institution, and to
Global geopolitical confrontations in the post-Cold War era and the role of Cuba
The authors begin from the premise that it is useful to analyse broad trends in international affairs by identifying key moments of change. The primary focus is the current phase of international affairs that has been labelled the post-Cold War world. The authors accept that the fall of the USSR at the end of 1991 marked an important change in geopolitics but argue that the 30-year time period...
Economic and media war against socialist societies: The case of US–Cuban relations
This article examines the US’s use of sanctions or unilateral coercive measures (economic war) and the US’s support for propaganda communicated through its own organised mass media and the supposedly “independent,” corporate mass media as well as through social media to instigate anti-government sentiment and action (media war). The US’s economic war against Cuba began soon after Cuba’s 1959...
There and back again: United States policy toward Cuba in the 21st century
The article proposes an approach to the US Cuba policy in the 21st century as public policy. We examine the core variables that drive this Cuba policy and their behaviour during the 21st century. We then identify the central axes of the policy and study their expressions. This allows us to explain the evolution of that policy across three administrations, the first year of a fourth and ten and a...
Cuban cobalt: A gateway to strategic minerals politics?
This article explores Cuba’s status within the context of strategic minerals politics, focusing specifically on cobalt. Cuba has the third largest cobalt reserves in the world, which is a crucial element in lithium-ion batteries (especially those used in electric cars). The US, on the other hand, is sorely lacking in cobalt, which is on Washington’s list of Strategic Raw Minerals and is ranked...

Trans-oceanic erotics: sexing indentureship
Through creative speculation and intervention, this research project probes the ‘coolie homoerotic’ (Wahab 2019) as a critical reflection on the place of the homoerotic and queerness within the trans-oceanic lifeworld of coolie indentureship. The four artworks presented are informed by a series of questions that might help to build a platform for queering indentureship and trans-oceanic space...

Krishna kee bansi bhajay
Nachania (नचंनिया), translated as ‘female dancer’, refers to both a traditional Indo-Jamaican folk dance that has local origins in indentureship, and to those who perform it. The dance is characterized by flamboyant flailing hands, counterbalanced by acrobatic feats and yogic moments synchronous with beat drops. Its unbound choreography salvages important religio-cultural and historical...

Offspring of a virgin’s womb
Robert Antoni’s Divina Trace has not yet found the wide readership that might be expected of the winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, perhaps because it does not conform to its readers’ expectations of a Caribbean novel. And yet it is of particular relevance to the legacy of indentureship and the East Indian presence in Trinidad and to the relationships among the different ethnic groups on...

This scholarship is significant in challenging patriarchal gender ideologies at the intersections of race, class and sexuality. This body of work reveals how violence is embedded in the state and governmental bodies, and highlights the overall disparities in the...
