This is the second volume in the Consortium Graduate School's series Studies in Caribbean Public Policy and represents the results of a programme of training in multidisciplinary policy-oriented research provided to graduate professionals from Caribbean countries through the MSc Development Studies degree.
The volume focuses on selected issues and problems in social policy. Each of the seven papers presented here is a case study which offers fresh insights or radical and new interpretations of persistent problems in the region. The first three papers treat the society's most vulnerable or marginal social groups: youths, women and the elderly. Other areas of focus are education, crime and policing, rural to urban migration and labour relations.
