This is particularly so when one economically powerful nation acts against another, and regulations are written in such a way that they have an extraterritorial effect on third nations and their citizens. The best-known example is of […]

The View from Europe  For years now, Caribbean High Commissioners, activists, church organisations and community oriented Caribbean companies have been raising with the British government and parliamentarians the shocking way in which undocumented members of the Caribbean Diaspora who came to Britain between 1948 and 1971 have been treated. This has involved, in the absence […]

This  is  because  the  shape  of  Britain’s  future  relationship  with  the  EU27  and  other international trade partners including the Caribbean remains ill-defined, […]
