The Caribbean integration process is evolving in new ans exciting ways but that process requires action on the part of regional governments to give substance to what has been in the minds and hearts of Caribbean people for a very long time.
The setting for Caribbean people to press their demand for less talk and more action from their leaders was provided at a Forum on the future of the Caribben calling for 'disruptive thinking, bold action and practical outcomes'. It was held in Trinidad in 2015 and jointly hosted by The University of the West Indies and the government of Trinidad and Tobago. The forum's agenda was carefully designed to capture the ambitions of the Caribbean people, embrace Caribbean convergance, tackle povery and inequality, find innovative financing solutions and shape a new global compact through diplomacy.
This book is a distillation of the action agenda presented at the forum by heads of governments and their ministers, industry professionals, representatives of international and regional organizations, academics, young professionals and significantly youth leaders. Its thirteen chapters, divided into four sections address issues of concern for the common citizen.
