This webinar is part of the LACC/CPC Caribbean Policy Series. With a special emphasis on the Anglophone Caribbean, the series includes three webinars with experts from the Greater Caribbean region, moderated by FIU faculty and CPC members, and a series of policy-oriented papers addressing economic, political, and strategic matters in the region that will be published electronically by LACC. The LACC/CPC Caribbean Policy Series is part of LACC’s renewed commitment to expand programming related to the Anglophone Caribbean, a sub-region with phenomenal human capacities, strong democratic institutions and incredibly rich socio-cultural and environmental diversity.
The Caribbean is marked by an abundance of natural resources and opportunities for international investment, but also faces challenges related to security, infrastructure, sustainable development, energy, and governance. Panelists analyze the importance of Anglophone Caribbean political, economic, and strategic policy, and discuss its unique advantages and challenges related to global power politics; trade and technological asymmetries; energy sector expansion in oil and gas; and climate change.
