Abstract [en]

This study investigates the embargo imposed on Cuba and their possible democratization process. The study will provide answers regarding why the Cuban democratization process has been stagnant, if United States has gone against their liberal values when supporting other countries and if Cuba has chances of reaching a democratic transition from their current totalitarian regime. A theory-testing approach is applied when analysing this matter, and the selected theories were the theory of liberalism and Larry Diamond’s theory the internal values; authoritarian division, authoritarian development, free values and civil society. The author found that different factors have indeed revealed that possibilities for democratization are achievable. Actors who has the main authority to lead Cuba to democracy is the military and the communist party. The outcome of this research also discovered that the embargo constrains a possible democratization process in the country.

Keywords: Cuba, Embargo, Sanction, Democratization, Castro, Liberalism, Internal values
