The International Institute for the Study of Cuba is an initiative by a team of UK located academics, specialists and consultants with the object of providing an in-depth and focused appraisal of the Cuban “Social Experience."

The Institute is a membership association, open to all who share the aims and objectives. Our primary goal is to support and ensure the continued publication of the International Journal of Cuban Studies and to organise educational and academic events that disseminate research on Cuba, in particular its history, culture and scientific achievements.

Money raised by the IISC goes to pay the expenses of providing the editorial content of the journal.
