If Barack Obama and Raúl Castro sat down for negotiations, what could they talk about? In its new report, “9 Ways for US to Talk to Cuba and for Cuba to Talk to US,” the Center for Democracy in the Americas urges cooperation in nine critical areas where Washington and Havana can work together, and build relationships of confidence and trust, by solving problems in both countries’ national interests. We recruited a team of scholars and experts to offer their ideas for U.S.-Cuba cooperation in military affairs, migration, energy, trade, academic exchange and other fields which could then produce the progress that has eluded our diplomats for five decades. A copy of this report and its recommendations is available for download here.
