Uncertainty in a Time of Global Fragmentation
- Published: April 2022
As the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) approaches its fiftieth anniversary in 2023, the contributors to Caribbean Integration: Uncertainty in Time of Global Fragmentation critically reflect on the evolution of regional movement, analysing the challenges of maintaining relevance in a post-Brexit era of regional integration, while also highlighting opportunities for its reinvigoration.
This collection offers diverse perspectives from scholars within the region and beyond on the political, social, economic, cultural and environmental dimensions of regional integration. The volume is unique in its inclusion of critical analysis of CARICOM's performance on addressing prominent global development issues, which have rarely been featured in writings on Caribbean integration. The contributors consider the role and influence of youth, language, reparatory justice, election reform, gender-based violence, migration, trade and climate change on the deepening and longevity of CARICOM institutions. Their analyses signal the new prospects for emerging from a crisis of regionalism and moving towards sustainability.
