Abstract

As Cuba transitions to the post-Castro era, the U.S. must consider re-engaging the island. The first step to lifting the embargo against Cuba under current U.S. law is resolution of property claims issues arising from Castro's 1959 nationalization policies. This is the executive summary of Creighton University's USAID funded report, the full version of which is available from the Law School.

Keywords: Cuba, Castro, nationalization, property claims, real estate, sugar mill, embargo, Libertad Act, Helms-Burton, international trade, Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal, The Hague, Spanish Civil Code, tribunal
