Democracy and Human Rights in the Caribbean


The Caribbean, like regions else-where, is caught in what has been called democracy's global "Third Wave." In this volume, contributors examine the nature of democratization in the region together with its accessory, human rights. The emphasis is to extend the analysis & debates beyond political democracy & civil & political rights to consider also economic democracy & economic & social rights. Because the democracy & human rights challenges & dynamics vary across countries, the work also offers extensive single-country assessments. Contributors: Francis Alexis, Damian J. Fernandez, Anselm A. Francis, Dorith Grant-Wisdom, Clifford E. Griffin, Ivelaw L. Griffith, Elizabeth A. Houppert, Robert E. Maguire, Trevor Munroe, David J. Padilla, Betty N. Sedoc-Dahlberg, W. Marvin Will, Larman C. Wilson.
