The late Fidel Castro led Cuba for nearly 50 years. A charismatic Communist revolutionary who deposed the right wing Batista regime, he had an extraordinary impact on global politics and history.

To his critics, Castro was a totalitarian despot, who denied his people basic freedoms and pushed the world to the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

But to his defenders and admirers, he was a revolutionary hero who made sure his people had access to universal health care and an enviable education system.

Dr Robert Austin will discuss Castro’s controversial and lasting impact on Cuba and wider world politics.
