CARICOM's success in navigating the global environment calls for a paradigm shift in diplomatic initiatives from a bi-lateral platform towards a collective and synchronised effort at the regional, hemispheric and global levels. The development of a cohgesive CARICOM foregin policy would provide a more structured foundation for maximising the collective efforts, resources and gains. In CARICOM: Policy Options for International Engagement, the contributors bring a wealth of experience and knowledge in putting forward the critical questions policymakers must consider and answer, in charting the course and laying the framework for this coordinated structure and foreign policy plan. Divided into four sections, the volume firstly presents the perspectives that corroborate the need for collective action. The second section focuses on the emerging powers and the need for South to South Cooperation while the third section discusses the external trade negotiations and the impact of the loss of EU preferences and subsidies: the EPA and trade negotiations in the WTO: and the new CARICOM-US trade relations. In the fourth and final section, the volume is rounded out by an examination of the kind of cooperation that is needed first at the regional level to sustain economic development. The need for harmonisation of fisheries policies and the prevention of maritime degradation: the preservation of the environment and the need to reverse the effects of climate change: the need for a cohesive regional security policy and a viable air transportation industry as well as the legal framework to implement multilateral treaties are all examined as imperative to CARICOM s development of a Coordinated regional foreign policy plan.
