Country Conditions and FDI Inflows to Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

Issue: 

Macro-economic conditions in host countries influence the direction of
foreign direct investments flows. This article, using a 12-year panel data
(2000-2011) for 35 SIDS, modelled the relationship between country
conditions in the host country and the flow of FDIs to SIDS, an understudied
location in the FDI literature. Using the eclectic paradigm as the
main theoretical lens, the study modelled the critical variables that are
defined as country conditions, to measure their impact on FDI flows to

The Experiences of Caribbean Migrant Farmworkers in Ontario, Canada

Issue: 

Securing a reliable work force for Canada’s agricultural sector has been
challenging (Ferguson 2007). Canada has sought to meet these challenges
through its Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (SAWP), a managed
migration programme that brings temporary workers to Canada. The
experiences of farm workers have garnered much attention over the last
two decades but relatively little has been written about the experiences of
Caribbean workers. This paper is based on a qualitative study of farm

The Caribbean Sea Commission (CSC): defining the ‘Special Area’

Issue: 

The Caribbean Sea Commission (CSC) was established by the
Association of Caribbean States (ACS) in 2007, as a structured
mechanism to promote the sustainable development of the
Caribbean Sea (Association of Caribbean States 2007, 2). Chief
among its mandates is the elaboration of the Caribbean Sea
Initiative (CSI)—the proposal tabled by Member States of the ACS
at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 1999, calling
for designation of the Caribbean Sea, as a ‘special area,’ within the

Organizing For Good Fisheries Governance in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM)

Issue: 

Three important fisheries initiatives in the Caribbean Large Marine
Ecosystem (CLME) are the Caribbean Network of Fisherfolk
Organisations (CNFO), the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism
(CRFM) and the Caribbean Community Common Fisheries Policy
(CCCFP). We examine the recent development of the CNFO from an
institutional analysis perspective. This highlights the interaction, or lack
of it, with the CRFM and CCCFP. We argue that a regional fisherfolk
organization, such as the CNFO, can play a critical role in fisheries

Ocean Governance and the Ocean Commissioner in the Pacific

Issue: 

Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) that make up the
Pacific Islands Ocean region are guardians of a vast area of the
earth’s surface, covering at least 40 million square kilometers. The
ocean comprises around 98 percent of the region. Pacific Islanders
are people of the sea. They derive significant social, economic and
environmental benefit from the ocean, recognizing that the ocean is
their greatest natural asset.
Pacific Island countries have made numerous commitments at

Linking Caribbean Ocean Governance Efforts to Global Arrangements

Issue: 

The critically important goods and services from marine ecosystems of the
Wider Caribbean Region (WCR) are threatened by both intra-regional and
extra-regional forces, leading to pollution, overexploitation and habitat
destruction, with climate change adding a layer of uncertainty in terms of
impacts. To address these challenges, there appears to be an emerging
structure that suggests an enhanced global-regional linkage of ocean
governance arrangements is a necessity in the post-2015 arena. We argue

An Ocean Policy for the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR)1

Issue: 

Countries of the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR) have committed to ocean
governance, also, to sustainable development. The two pursuits are
interlinked, and must be pursued in tandem, and in an integrated way, to
achieve these goals. Often they are not, and fragmented ocean governance
and disconnect between ocean governance and sustainable development
results. The WCR needs an ocean policy to integrate its ocean governance
into an overarching vision of sustainable development to enhance its
