Professor Gabilondo presents on same-sex marriage debates in Cuba’s constitutional reform

On July 26, 2019, Professor Gabilondo presented on Cuba’s recent constitutional reform at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy, held in Miami.  He emphasized the threats posed to the island’s sexual minorities by the growing political power of religious groups, who most recently defeated the Cuban Communist Party’s proposal to extend civil marriage to gays and lesbians.

Recently, he also published a chapter on Understanding OFAC’s New Restrictions on Direct Financial Transactions with the Cuban Government in Soraya Castro and Margaret Craham (eds.), Donald J. Trump Y Las Relaciones Cuba-Estados Unidos En La Encrucijada, a peer-reviewed volume of papers based on Cuba’s Center of Research for International Politics’ annual conference on Cuba in US foreign policy.
