After 2008 the presidency of Raúl Castro took steps to revamp the highly centralized form of socialism for which Cuba had been known. Though Cuba’s Actualización draws from other experiences of socialist reform, it appears to be a distinctive approach. The Cuba Project/Bildner Center Colloquium provides an update on the evolving policies and the structural and institutional changes in progress in 2013. The colloquium closes with a review of policy and research implications.
