Caribbean Economic Governance Workshop

Wednesday, February 21, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Feb 21

This project proposes to convene researchers and private and public sector leaders to examine and provide substantive and relevant answers and policy prescription to current economic governance challenges facing the Caribbean region.

Four major original papers will be presented at this first meeting. One paper will examine the topic of strategic global repositioning of the Caribbean region, with a focus on economic governance question that such a repositioning would entail addressing, and the regional capacity to address such questions. The second will outline and examine temporary migration issues and concerns within a Caribbean context. The third and fourth papers will be presented by our partners of the "Taking Responsibility" project and will focus on corruption and a case study of the Jamaican Economy since independence.
