Dr. Jan Yves Remy became the Director of the SRC on August 1 2021, having joined as Deputy Director in August 2018. She is an international trade lawyer who, over the course of her twenty year career, has advised governments and private stakeholders on international trade matters, with a focus on dispute settlement under the auspices of the World Trade Organization (WTO). In her capacity as SRC Director, she is in charge of co-ordinating the SRC’s flagship Masters in International Trade Policy Programme (MITP), in which she also lectures in law and trade aspects of Caribbean regional integration. She has also designed and implemented a number of short courses which the Centre runs in collaboration with strategic international partners, including the WTO and the OECS Commission. She spearheaded the SRC’s Trading Thoughts bi-monthly column and monthly SRC Lunch Time Chats which she frequently contributes to.
She researches, writes and produces commentaries on international trade dispute settlement regimes, climate change and trade, WTO reform, trade and gender issues, e-commerce, regional integration and investment policy, in particular, how they affect small island states including those in the Caribbean. She is Barbados Chair under the WTO’s Chair Programme and has served as a WTO Panelist under the dispute settlement arm of the World Trade Organization and is an appointed arbitrator under a number of dispute settlement mechanisms under free trade agreements.
Jan Yves keeps abreast of topics and issues relevant to Caribbean governments relating to international law and policy and has been a featured speaker at a number of Caribbean and international seminars and conferences. Consultancies include work with the World Bank on Subsidies; with CARICOM and WTI Advisors on ecommerce strategies in the context of ongoing plurilateral negotiations on trade-related aspects of e-commerce at the WTO; and with the Commonwealth Secretariat on Natural Disasters and Climate Change.
