Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the Cuban debate concerning civil society. It explains that it is widely accepted in Cuba that the debate about civil society was one of the great debates of the 1990s because during this decade there was a boom in interest in civil society and an explosion in the use and study of the term within Cuban intellectual circles. The analysis reveals that the fertile debate which evolved in Cuba around the theme of civil society can be traced within publications and through discussions held on the subject by research centers and Cuban non-governmental organizations (NGO), whose findings were later disseminated publicly via journals and cultural magazines.
