Welcome to the Centre for Tourism and policy Research (CTPR). We were a new Centre at the UWI and aim to become the first stop for research on tourism and other related development policy issues critical to the progress of Jamaica and indeed the wider Caribbean. The Centre has been established as a Campus Centre located in the Faculty of Social Sciences with the aim of advancing research and training in the area of tourism and other related development policy research in Jamaica and the Caribbean.
