Brexit: Implications for the Caribbean and the Future of UK-Caribbean Relations

Now that the UK has fully exited the EU, its international relations are on a new footing.In this vein, UK-Caribbean relations have also had to adjust. There are emerging debates about this new chapter in UK-Caribbean relations, as progress takes shape on several fronts.

In this regard, are you interested in acquiring substantive knowledge and real-world insight on underlying debates germane to the CARIFORUM-UK Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA)? Are you seeking information on Caribbean states’ policy toward the UK? The UK has traditionally partnered closely with regional states on a host of issues, building on the premise of a ‘special relationship’. Whither that relationship in the 2020s, having regard to the UK’s post-Brexit global role and some emergent global trends? Do you want to gain a broader perspective on the future of UK-Caribbean relations, with an eye to the weaknesses in multilateralism that the COVID-19 crisis has exposed?

If so, then join the Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean (DAOC) on 31 March 2021, from 9:30am to 12:30pm Atlantic Standard Time (AST).

The webinar will be held via Zoom teleconference.
