 ’THE SPECIAL PERIOD R.I.P.’ 2013

With the  recent announcements of the ‘updating’ of the Cuban economic model, it is now broadly accepted that what was known as ‘The Special Period in a time of peace’ in Cuba is now ended. Beginning with the onset of the  economic crisis following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990-1, the Special period lasted 20 years.

Papers and articles discussing the history, economic, political, cultural and social effects and consequences of the Special Period are now being welcomed for a special edition of the journal to be published in 2013.
