    BREXIT is the most damaging event in recent UK history, equivalent to the Suez Crisis of the early 1960s, in terms of it’s malevolent effect on UK politics, economics, and society. Boris Johnson will be UK Prime Minister by the end of July 2019, save his death, or some event totally unforeseen as yet. Johnson […]

    The new burden of diplomacy: the enemy within

    The mess resulting from reports that the British Ambassador to the United States, Sir Kim Darroch, made about President Donald Trump and his administration, underscore the dangers of leaking confidential government documents. If nothing else comes of this affair, the identification and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for leaking Sir Kim’s confidential and […]

    Making a difference: the example of António Guterres

    In his three and a half years as Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres has proved himself sensitive and alert to the difficulties confronting Caribbean states.  He has been an example that Secretaries-General of other inter-governmental organisations would do well to emulate, particularly those interested in being elected for second terms. His address to the 40th Regular Meeting […]

Maintaining independence: the imperative of diplomacy

Except at time of crisis, many countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) credit their foreign ministries and their embassies or high commissions abroad with little value. Yet, diplomacy, which is the work of foreign ministries and their overseas missions, is the only instrument available to Caribbean states to further their national interests in an international […]

CARICOM skin in the game

CARICOM skin in the game

Haiti’s current fiscal problems that led to four days of riots setting back the country’s already fragile economic and political stability, have implications for Caribbean Community and Common Market countries (CARICOM) that cannot be ignored. If economic and social conditions continue to deteriorate the flight of Haitians seeking refuge in other countries will intensify, and […]

CARICOM Summit needs to excite the people’s imagination

I wish I could say that “all eyes are on the CARICOM Heads of Government meeting to be held from 4 to 6 July in Jamaica”.  But, CARICOM events have long since ceased to hold excitement for the people of the 15-member community.

In what is increasingly becoming a pattern of ignoring established procedures and authority in the Organisation of American States (OAS), a delegation went to troubled Haiti on June 19 without any discussion or mandate by the Permanent Council, the organ responsible for making and overseeing policy between General Assemblies. The results of the unmandated OAS […]

Edward Seaga was a great Jamaican patriot well deserving of the many tributes that have been paid to him concerning his devoted service to his country.  But, he was not a regionalist and his tenure as Prime Minister of Jamaica, from 1980 to 1989, contributed to the deceleration of the regional integration process. In January 2015, […]

As territorial claims go, Guatemala’s claim to all – every square inch – of Belize is, perhaps, the most outrageous.   The only thing that is more outrageous than the scale of the claim is the argument on which it is based. In this context, it would have been right to expect the Belizean electorate, at […]
