    schema:description "US Policy Towards Cuba is a comprehensive examination of U.S. policy towards Cuba after the Cold War, from 1989-2008. It discusses competition between Congress and the executive for control of policy, and the domestic interests which shaped policymaking and led to passage of two major pieces of legislation (the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992 and the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act of 1996, known as the Helms-Burton Act) which tightened the embargo on Cuba and were fiercely resisted by U.S. allies. There is also a strong focus on migration as an issue in U.S.-Cuban relations. Gibbs then examines U.S. policy during the second Clinton administration, when the interest group environment altered for two principal reasons. First the case of the small Cuban rafter boy, Elián González, attracted huge media coverage and led to public questioning of the current policy, and secondly the agricultural lobby, keen to export to Cuba, lobbied for the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act, which finally passed in 2000. The final section analyzes democracy promotion efforts under President George W. Bush. Seeking to cast light upon US policymaking process, Gibbs demonstrates that U.S. Cuba policy represents an example of the influence of domestic politics on policymaking."@en ;
