U.S., Cuban Science Diplomacy Can Help Improve Relations, Researcher Says

World Policy Blog: Science Diplomacy and U.S.-Cuban Relations
Bernabé Malacalza, a researcher in international relations at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) in Argentina, based at the National University of Quilmes, discusses “Cuban health diplomacy” and science diplomacy between Cuba and the U.S. Malacalza writes that scientific cooperation between Cuba and U.S. “can help those in government, scientific communities, and other sectors make decisions by better understanding the positive outcomes that can result from science diplomacy. They can also serve as a call to action to put an end to the anachronistic rationale of the [U.S.] embargo, taking into account how working in areas of mutual scientific interest can advance U.S. and Cuban national, regional, local, or institutional interests” (7/11).
