Contemporary Caribbean Trade Policy


Course Description

This core course of the MITP programme introduces both the theoretical and practical dimensions of Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS)’s historical and contemporary participation in the Global Political Economy (GPE) more broadly, and in the rules-based multilateral trading system (MTS) more specifically. The course also explores options for recovery, structural reform, diversification and competitiveness, including foreign direct investment (FDI), MSMEs, industrial policy, diaspora engagement and economic diplomacy in repositioning Caribbean countries for sustainable export-led growth and development.
