National Association for Ethnic Studies: NAES

The oldest ethnic studies association in the United States, the National Association for Ethnic Studies (NAES) was founded in 1972. A non-profit organization, NAES provides an interdisciplinary forum for scholars and activists concerned with the national and international dimensions of ethnicity.

The Association welcomes scholars and teachers at all educational levels, students, libraries, civic and governmental organizations, and all persons interested in ethnicity, ethnic groups, intergroup relations, and the cultural life of ethnic minorities.

The Cuba Project is a collaborative effort to study changes in Cuban politics, economics, culture, and society. It focuses on developments in Cuba in an international context. The Cuba Project works with other academic and policy-oriented programs and institutions to promote dialogue between academics, policymakers, business and media figures, as well as students from various countries and disciplines.

The Cuba Project does not assume a single view about developments relating to Cuba. Rather, the events and publications of the Cuba Project bring together diverse sectors to explore complex realities. It aims to contribute to greater international understanding by promoting informed exchange in a pragmatic and constructive spirit and to advance cooperation in the identification and assessment of models, options, and policies.
