CSI Freedom Exchange Project
The Freedom Exchange Project is an initiative spearheaded by Conflict Solutions International. It involves petitions to the U.S. and Cuban governments for the release of certain political prisoners as a humanitarian gesture. The project objective is to allow for the freedom of many individuals, improve U.S.- Cuba relations and draw international attention to the complex relationship that exists between the two countries. The Freedom Exchange Project has been created to provide a conflict resolution platform that avoids the political and legal implications that come with prisoner exchanges. Both the U.S. and Cuba maintain that all of their current prisoners are common prisoners. Neither country admits to having political prisoners. Conflict Solutions International takes no position on the legal issues surrounding the cases. It only advocates for the release of the prisoners as a benevolent, reciprocal expression of good will.
