Assessing the Causes of Remittance Flows to Guyana: A Macroeconomic Approach

Issue: 

Relative to GDP, Guyana is one of the largest recipients of remittance flows
in the world, receiving on average 17 percent of its GDP. In past decades,
these transfers have increased considerably compared with other inflows,
including foreign direct investment and international aid. Yet little is
known about what macroeconomic factors explain their movement, or how
they impact Guyana’s economy. This article investigates the macroeconomic
determinants of remittance flows to Guyana. We estimate a

Unveiling Child Sexual Abuse through Participatory Action Research

Issue: 

There have been few studies of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). Many of them

are based on young adult recall and are generally approached from a bio

psychosocial perspective. This has resulted in children’s participation (CP)

in CSA prevention initiatives being left largely unexplored. To explore the

viability of CP within these initiatives this study adopted a unique and

holistic participatory action research approach with children in South

Managing Water Resources for Sustainable Development in the Caribbean: Dynamic Policy Options

Issue: 

Several Caribbean countries experience high levels of water scarcity and
water stress. This poses an enormous development challenge for the region
given growing demand, inadequate infrastructure and low investment in
the water sector. A vast literature examines the impact of the management
of global water resources on climate change, poverty and sustainable
development. However, few studies have considered the impact of water
scarcity on growth and sustainable development in the Caribbean. This

Finance and Development in the Caribbean: Threats to the Link

Issue: 

The aftermath of the global financial crisis of 2007/2008, followed by
threats of de-risking and issues surrounding correspondent banking,
provide a convenient context for researchers and policy-makers to
reconsider the role of the financial system in advancing growth and
development in the Caribbean. This article reviews the literature on the
link between finance and economic growth and development, and considers
major constraints which hinder the ability of the sector to make a greater

Framing Our Professional Identity: Experiences of Emerging Caribbean Academics

Issue: 

Universities across the globe are exploring the implementation of best

members of the recently formed group, St. Lucian Women Academic
Research Network (SWARN), have begun to explore the role of Caribbean
universities and informal networks in the formation of professional
identity and development among emerging academic faculty. Using

Trafficking Discourses of Dominican Women in Puerto Rico

Issue: 

We analyze the expansion of the anti-trafficking discourse in Puerto Rico
and its application to Dominican immigrants. Based on interviews with
social service providers, we argue that Dominican women are invisible in
current discourses of human trafficking for several reasons: their
racialization in a xenophobic context, their intimate labour trajectory, and
the national and international frameworks for understanding human
trafficking that exclude them from the category of “trafficking” victim and

The War on Humans Anti-trafficking in the Caribbean

Issue: 

This article considers the attention paid to human trafficking in the
Caribbean by governments of the region. It first examines how countries in
the region have been positioned in the annual US Trafficking in Persons
(TIP) Report from 2001 to 2016, discussing the shortcomings of hegemonic
discourses to trafficking such as problems with definitions, statistics and
evidence, the political underpinnings of the TIP report, and contradictions
in indices of ‘development’ in the region. It then turns to examine

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

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
