The decision to set US-Cuba relations on a new course is a break from decades of mutual animosities, including US efforts to isolate and transform Cuba through the embargo. As announced, the historic agreements of December 17, 2014, present opportunities and challenges in several areas: diplomatic relations, commerce, migration, remittances, economic reform, travel and tourism, democracy, and other areas. This roundtable explores the implications of the new chapter in US-Cuba relations.
