#TBT to our September 2016 event with Ambassador Charles Shapiro on "Cuba: The Embargo within the Embargo." The discussion was focused on what the renewed Cuba-US relationship presents as well as the economic challenges.

Recently the Cuba-U.S. relationship has been fraught with tension do to the supposed "sonic attacks" on the U.S. Embassy in Havana. New information is just coming to light, causing even more questions and suspicions about the cause of the health issues and who is responsible.
