Confronting Challenges, Maximising Opportunities

Confronting Challenges, Maximising Opportunities PDF Author:
Publisher: Ian Randle Publishers
ISBN: 9766373264
Category : Political Science
Languages : en
Pages : 186

Book Description
"Following the conclusion of the Second World War, the countries of the Caribbean faced serious challenges that threatened their individual survival. Political independence was meaningless without economic independence and the newly independent states of the Caribbean found themselves severely challenges by an international economic system founded on a development paradigm premised on the belief that the accumulation of wealth was the sole route to prosperity and that creating the conditions for more wealth was the preferred pathway to sustainable development. There have been numerous changes to this scenario over the years and Confronting Challenges Maximising Opportunities traces the Caribbean s response to the varying challenges. Using market access as the point to highlight specific challenges, this collection examines Caribbean Diplomacy and paints a picture of the imperatives for social and economic development and the need for a proactive stance to the conditionalities inherent in market access negotiations.

Caricom Single Market and Economy

Caricom Single Market and Economy PDF Author: Kenneth O. Hall
Publisher: Ian Randle Publishers
ISBN: 9766373256
Category : Business & Economics
Languages : en
Pages : 259

Book Description
"The CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) has for years been touted as the most critical pillar in Caribbean regional integration. Yet, for years, the implementation of the CSME stalled due to the absence of a common view as to its feasibility, the speed of its implementation, the institutional capacity, programming for public education and ultimately, its benefits. In this work, a special edition of the Integrationist, and put together by the UWI-CARICOM project, the CSME is explained in all its dimensions. The contents cover the background to the establishment of the CSME and perspectives on its implementation. The main provisions and expected benefits of the Single Market are also presented along with the strategic framework and efforts at resource mobilisation to make the CSME a reality. The importance of the Caribbean Court of Justice to the effective functioning of the CSME is also outlined. The book concludes with a call to the member states for a unity in both understanding and action in the pursuit of integration, not as choice, but rather as necessity. The work is complemented by the inclusion of several appendices notably the original 1989 Grand Anse Declaration, the 2005 PetroCaribe Agreement as well as an indicative plan of action by priorities and an outline of major technical assistance resource gaps.

Understanding International Trade

Understanding International Trade PDF Author: Edwin Laurent
Publisher: Ian Randle Publishers
ISBN: 9766373175
Category : Caribbean, English-speaking
Languages : en
Pages : 108

Book Description
"The Integrationist is an independent policy advocacy and education organization, launched to contribute to the promotion of the work of regional integration in CARICOM. The journal, produced by the organization and bearing the same name, facilitates access to the works and contributions of the Region s leading intellectuals and opinion makers, both within the Caribbean and in the Diaspora. In this special edition entitled Understanding International Trade: A CARICOM Perspective, the author addresses the question of whether CARICOM as a group of small states with little leverage or power in the global trading system should remain engaged in external negotiations and international organizations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO). While the loss of long-standing preferential trade benefits has overshadowed the region s trade policy for a number of years, the author states the case for the diversification of the small mono-crop or single industry developing countries that dominate the Caribbean; and argues that such diversification is essential for balanced and sustained economic growth and development of CARICOM . The text is complemented by several illustrations in the form of boxes, figures and tables which illuminate the material. "

COVID in the Islands: A comparative perspective on the Caribbean and the Pacific

COVID in the Islands: A comparative perspective on the Caribbean and the Pacific PDF Author: Yonique Campbell
Publisher: Springer Nature
ISBN: 9811652856
Category : Social Science
Languages : en
Pages : 538

Book Description
This book provides the first wide-ranging account of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in two contrasting island regions - the Caribbean and the Pacific - and in several islands and island states. It traces the complexity of effects and responses, at different scales, through the first critical year. Written by a range of scholars and practitioners working in the region the book focuses on six key themes: public health; the economies (notably the collapse of tourism, the revival of local agriculture and fishing, and the rebirth of self-reliance, and even barter); the rescue by remittances; social tensions and responses; public policy; and future ‘bubbles’ and regional connections. Even with marine borders that excluded the virus all island states were affected by COVID-19 because of a considerable dependence on tourism – prompting urgent challenges for governance, economic management and development, as small states sought to balance lives against livelihoods in search of revitalisation or even a ‘new normal’.
