US-Cuba Policy Experts Discuss ‘Deep Differences’ on Human Rights | Global Voices

In late January, a group of politicians, diplomats, journalists, business people, and American and Cuban-American academics gathered in Washington DC, United States, to discuss the rebuilding of relations between the two countries. The group was convened by intellectuals and advocates involved in the Cuba Posible project – a Cuban forum for political debate — and the Cuba Research Center, a US-based non-profit organization.

According to the official Twitter account of Cuba Posible, key topics at the conference included “the diplomatic ties between both countries, the current political challenges on the island, the required improvement of democratic processes in Cuba, the performance of the press, and human rights.” ….

One of the most complex and controversial topics over decades of negotiations between the US and Cuba has been the issue of human rights. During talks that began in Havana on January 22, delegations from both countries stated that they maintain “deep differences” on the matter.
