LLILAS Welcomes Tinker Visiting Professor from Cuba
Posted: January 30, 2013
LLILAS is pleased to welcome Tinker Visiting Professor Jorge Mario Sánchez Egozcue, Professor of Economics from the Universidad de La Habana, Cuba. During Spring 2013, Dr. Sánchez will be teaching the graduate course “Latin American Economics and Development” and will give a public lecture on U.S.-Cuba relations in April.
Dr. Sánchez received his MA from Carleton University, Canada, and his PhD in international economics from the Universidad de La Habana. He has lectured and served as a visiting professor at the Brookings Institute and at Columbia and Harvard universities, among others. Dr. Sánchez first visited LLILAS in 1992 and again in 1994 as part of an exchange program funded by the MacArthur Foundation’s Program on Peace and International Cooperation. His current work focuses on the political and economic relations between Latin America and the United States, Canada, and Europe and on the economy, commerce, and development of Cuba.
Dr. Sánchez has published numerous articles. His most recent, “United States-Cuba Economic Relations: The Pending Normalization,” was featured in the book Debating U.S.-Cuban Relations, published in 2012. He also published several articles in 2011, including “La inserción internacional del comercio cubano, transformaciones y retos” in the book Cuba en tiempos de cambio.
We hope that his presence will help to facilitate other developing Cuba initiatives. Please give a warm welcome to Prof. Sánchez Egozcue.
