Cuba in a Global Context
Since 1959, Cuba has occupied a unique position in global affairs, with a persistent prominence that might seem unlikely for a small developing island country in the Caribbean. However, Cuba has long had a significant, highly active place not just in the foreground of international relations—where Cubans found themselves at the center of the Cold War geopolitical struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union—but also, equally importantly, within the constructs of internationalism—the promotion of increased economic and political cooperation amongst nations—and transnationalism—people-to-people rather than government-to-government relationships. The constructs of international relations, internationalism, and transnationalism are not only intertwined, but also central to the country’s revolutionary project. New domestic considerations and the advent of an evolving new international order simply provide a different setting for how and why the Cuban government, its people, émigré Cubans, and other states and peoples interact.
