Rethinking Regionalism: Beyond the CARICOM Integration Project

Event Date(s): 07/10/2013 - 09/10/2013

Location: The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus


You are invited to submit abstracts for the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) conference "Rethinking Regionalism: Beyond the CARICOM Integration Project," October 7-9, 2013, at the UWI Mona Campus.

Given that July 2013 marks 40 years of the CARICOM regional integration project from its origins in CARIFTA, this conference seeks to engage colleagues in a sweeping review of the region writ large, reflected in themes which go beyond the CARCOM project and which also take account of how the complex problems of contemporary reality are likely to shape CARICOM in the future. The conference also invites consideration of other integration schemes in other parts of the world as a basis for comparison and lesson learning.

Conference themes include:

- Rethinking Regionalism and Regional Integration

- Whither CARICOM? Assessing CARICOM 40 years after the start of the integration project

- Interrogating Models of Regional Governance

- Functionalism and CARICOM 

Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2013
