About us


The International Institute for the Study of Cuba (IISC) is an initiative by a team of UK located academics, specialists and consultants that was founded in 2006 with the initial objective of providing an in-depth and focused appraisal of the Cuban “Social Experience”.

It is our view that a holistic study of Cuba is essential and can only be undertaken within an academic centre beyond the confines of the US-Cuba divide and with the rigour of academic enquiry.

The Institute was established at London Metropolitan University in 2007 but it now has an independent development plan as an unincorporated membership association and is open for individuals and organisations to join.

One of its main purposes is to promote and help to finance the editorial content of The International Journal of Cuban Studies, a quarterly academic journal, published by Pluto Journals.
