On April 2, 2007, the Brookings Institution in partnership with the Cuba Study Group hosted a Focus on Cuba event featuring the release of the results of a new Cuba Research Institute, Florida International University poll of Cuban-Americans.

These poll results revealed how Cuban-Americans view the likelihood and opportunity for change in Cuba today, and how it compares with their views in 2004 and earlier. This poll, as well as the results of other released surveys of both Cubans and Cuban-Americans, was reviewed, including a discussion of whether the recent transition from Fidel Castro to Raul Castro has made a difference. The implications of these issues for the future of U.S.–Cuba policy were a major focus of this discussion.
