Topic: How did the Cuban Missile Crisis affect the U.S. foreign policy in Cuba during the Cold War?
How did the Cuban Missile Crisis affect the U.S. foreign policy in Cuba during the Cold War? This question is often overlooked in the existing literature because most of them focus on the impacts of the Crisis on the Soviet-U.S. relations. My research project, therefore, focuses on Cuba and the U.S. To answer my research question, I searched on different academic databases related to Latin American studies, history, and political science. I have included primary and secondary sources to provide a more comprehensive picture. The primary sources used would include declassified CIA documents, government memos, photos, and correspondence between leaders. This research topic was significant because it reflected the period when Cuban-U.S. relations became more negative. By understanding the change in foreign policy direction after the Cuban Missile Crisis, we could gain a better understanding of the development of Cuban-U.S. relations since the Cold War.
