Who We Are
Welcome to the Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC). The SRC is the home of the UWI Flagship Program, the Masters in International Trade Policy (MITP). Take some time to review the information on these pages and we invite you to join us as we seek to become a major force within the University aligned to the vision of our society.
The origins of today’s Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC) lie in the Centre for International Services (CIS). The CIS was set up in 1999 under the Principal’s Office of the Cave Hill Campus to signal the preparedness of the University of the West Indies (UWI) to respond to the inherent challenges and opportunities for Caribbean countries resulting from the ongoing changes in the world economy. The CIS was mandated to create a forum for the development of the Caribbean services sector through innovation, consultancy, specialized research, advocacy and partnerships.
