Export Mineral Rents, Rentierism and Make Work Programmes An Assessment of the Welfare Consequences for a Small Gas Exporting Economy

Issue: 

The literature has profiled the experience of several extractive industry
economies throughout history to identify key commonalities such as the
tendency to implement welfare systems which negatively impact long-run
resource allocation. These commonalities in terms of social, economic, and
political economy attributes have been collectively coined as the ‘Resource
Curse Thesis’; the reinforcing nature of the combination of factors
ultimately culminate to constrain long-run economic growth. This paper

Segmenting Jamaica’s Small Hotel Market for Better Targeting

Issue: 

Market segmentation is a popularly employed practice in the tourism and
hospitality business, yet the literature is sparse and lags behind practice,
not only in the area of small hotels but in the general segmentation of the
tourism and hospitality markets. This study argues, that, in light of the
need for effective marketing in the hospitality business, in general, and the
small hotels in particular, the popular bases of segmentation need to be
combined in a scientific way for identifying more attractive market

firms and governments have realized that CSR provides a mechanism for
the private sector to align itself with sustainable development goals. In this
paper, we examine the oil and gas sector as firms in this sector have been

Incorporating the Outlying Member States in Sustainable Intra-CARICOM Migration Policies

Issue: 

Intra-CARICOM migration is advocated as a strategic tool for fostering a
regional identity and development, but immigrants’ origins and
destinations impact these goals. Based on in-depth interviews and a crossnational
survey, this article delineates how intra-regional migrants from
outlying member states perceive their integration and mobility experiences
within CARICOM. Information-deficiencies, non-acceptance and the
absence of positive migration narratives undermined both their lived
experiences and attachments to CARICOM. The article makes

Several Caribbean countries experience high levels of water scarcity and

the water sector. A vast literature examines the impact of the management
of global water resources on climate change, poverty and sustainable

Knowledge Brokerage, SDGs and The Role of Universities

This article contends that knowledge brokerage should be recognized as a
key function of regional universities as Caribbean states seek to advance
the 2030 development agenda. As Caribbean universities evolve, public
engagement and linkage and exchange mechanisms that support the
developmental and entrepreneurial missions of modern universities need
to be strengthened. By detailing the case of a University of the West Indies-
