This chapter assesses the challenges and possibilities facing Cuba, the EU and its members if they are to build a mutually beneficial, respectful, stable, long-term relationship that can contribute to the island’s international insertion and accompany the economic, political and institutional updating of the Cuban socialist system. The analysis identifies key variables and actors in the evolution of Cuba–EU relations and the prevailing perceptions in the European institutions that either contribute to or hamper their constructive development.
