Book Description

Investigating the unique EU-CARICOM legal relationship, this book explores

the major theme of globalisation, which shapes inter-regional organisations

individually and determines their relationship to one another. It evaluates how

EU-CARICOM relations have fostered trade, security and other development

measures, reflecting on the past, future and present of the Caribbean states that

are active in the EU-CARICOM framework.

Providing case studies on key issues such as immigration, tax and energy, it

examines the impact that the EU-CARICOM has on the slave trade and the

deportation of millions of people. Such bitter experiences still indirectly shape

culture, hopes and the economic framework of possibilities today; therefore, the

focus of the volume is on the issues which the constant stream of globalisation

creates. The book assesses many potential impacts that the agenda of the EU

and Brexit pending will have upon the EU-CARICOM relationship, given the

potential for these to create instability.

Overall, it highlights how the EU and CARICOM are representations for

multilateralism and serve as models that provide the basis for many successful

initiatives and agreements. In all new agreements and negotiations, the will to

accept the Sustainable Development Goals and thus to make inequality, climate

change and other goals of the SDGs the basis of an order that puts people

at the centre, are evaluated, and the global agenda 2030 and its impact on

EU-CARICOM.
