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.

Public seminar: The market as master or servant? Cuba’s attempt at a new ‘middle way’

In this paper, Dr Wilkinson examines the problems of the Cuba's centrally planned economy from the point of view of the classical liberal economists, Freidrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises, and argues that they would see the recent policy changes as a tacit admission that Cuba's command economy is a failure. However, they would also warn the Cuban government that by hanging on to an interventionist role, this bold new experiment is doomed to fail as well.
