Abstract

This paper looks at the question of development by focusing on both
Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. At the heart of
the project is the notion of sustainability, and how to achieve well-being
even in the most challenging conditions, isolated economies and sanction-
laden realities. This is done by tracing both countries’ engagement
and development in the fields of health and education. We suggest that
political engagement with these countries should be prioritised, without
challenging an established political order but with its consent, and
with the hope that future generations are socialised to a culture of
openness.
