Event Details

UCL - Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) proudly hosts this international conference, with keynotes by Professors Norman Girvan and Brian Meeks (both University of West Indies). Other distinguished scholars include Dr Clifford Griffin (North Carolina State University), Prof David Hinds (Arizona State University) amongst others.

This conference seeks to address the urgent need for an expanded and updated analysis of the experience of Westminster in the Caribbean. It will consider how the political model inherited from Britain has been transformed within the conditions of the Caribbean, its impact on Caribbean democracy, and the challenges the model has faced over the period of independence.

This event is organised with the kind support of AHRC.

The Westminster in the Caribbean: History, Legacies, Challenges project at the Institute of the Americas at UCL is a network of researchers and practitioners working to conduct an expanded and updated analysis of the 50-year experience of the Westminster model of governance in the Caribbean.
