Dr. Stephen Wilkinson, President of the International Institute for the Study of Cuba at the British University of Buckingham, and editor of the International Journal of Cuban Studies opposes the US embargo/sanctions based on false health political narratives such as "free" education, and healthcare in Cuba without pointing out the deplorable state of hospitals and medical services to the population in contrast to those received by the leaders of Castroism and foreigners, blaming the US embargo for all the deficiencies of the socialist system and favoring a rapprochement with the Cuban dictatorship without taking into account the dictatorship's lack of freedom and the human rights violations.
