Panel Discussion: Pathways of Autonomy

Event Date(s): 29/11/2012

Location: Faculty of Law Auditorium

Students of UWI’s Faculty of Law collaborate with the Guild of Students to host a panel discussion on the topic Pathways of Autonomy, on Thursday 29th November, 2012, from 1-3.30pm, at the Faculty of Law Auditorium.

The discussion will explore Trinidad and Tobago’s (T&T) achievements during the past 50 years of Independence and 36 years of Republicanism, and aims to provide an understanding of crucial considerations of the nation’s development and status as an independent state within the international community. By highlighting T&T’s successes, failures, and realities, this discussion seeks to answer the questions: Is there a collective vision for T&T? Is it clearly articulated?   Members of the panel include: 

  1. Prof Patrick Watson, Director of the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute for Social and Economics Studies (SALISES), Former Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and current Chairman of the Trinidad and Tobago Securities and Exchange Commission
  2. Prof Brian Copeland, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering 
  3. Mr Douglas Mendes, Senior Counsel and Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Law
  4. Dr Olabisi Kuboni, Former Head of the Graduate Programmes Department, UWI Open Campus; and working committee member at the Constitution Reform Forum;
  5. Mrs Indera Sagewan-Alli, Executive Director of the Caribbean Centre for Competitiveness
