    Abstract

    (From the introduction). The commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Cuban Republic on May 20, 2002, has provided an opportunity to review not only the survival of the Cuban regime but the whole history of the Cuban nation. (1) This event coincided with the historical visit of former President Jimmy Carter to Havana2 and the reiteration of the unwillingness of the United States to terminate its embargo on Cuba, as expressed by President Bush in an unprecedented speech in Washington and a trip to Miami. (3) At the same time, there has been increased friction between Cuba and some influential Latin American countries, such as the special case of Mexico. The tension generated in the aftermath of the vote taken in the United Nations Commission for Human Rights in Geneva in April of 2002 revealed a crack in the comfortable linkage enjoyed by Castro with most of the hemisphere. In this context, Cuba’s relationship with Europe has acquired a new profile. It is time for a historical review and a consideration of the most salient aspects of European-Cuban relations and some of its pending issues.
