Political scientist Javier Corrales assesses the island's social and financial challenges

Cuba faces a combination of short-term and long-term problems. Hurricane Ian devastated the island. This came amid a long period of setbacks, coupled with a deep economic contraction and an extreme migration crisis. Cubans have taken to the streets in recent weeks. Is the nation at risk of even greater instability? How, if anything, might the relationship with the United States change? And is there an existential threat to the Cuban authorities themselves? In this episode of the Americas Quarterly Podcast , Brian Winter talks with political scientist Javier Corrales about the situation on the island and what could happen next.
