Emerging Interaction of Political Processes: The Effect on a Study Abroad Program in Cuba
Journal of Teaching International Business
The emerging interaction of political processes sets the stage for the level of macro uncertainty and specific risk events that may occur in an international relationship. Strongly defined social control in Cuba, formal and informal, dominates the dynamics of the relationship, while simultaneously government, formal, action in the U.S. dominates the ability of American individuals to further the relationship. This study examines the development of a long-term relationship between two universities from the U.S. and Cuba. Over a period of eight years the relationship changes considerably as events on the macro stage play out and the environment for detente shifts. The key focus of this relationship lies with developing the study abroad program, taking students from the U.S. to Cuba
