New visitor at iCourts – Indira Rampersad

2 - 10 January 2018

Dr. Indira Rampersad is a Lecturer in Political Science at
the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. She will be visiting iCourts from January 2nd
to 10th, 2018.

While at iCourts she will undertake research and present
on the topic “the Caribbean Court of Justice and Regional Integration”. Her research focuses on the impact of the dynamics of politics, ethnicity and class on the operations of the Caribbean Court of Justice and ultimately on the court’s capacity to foster regional integration. Emphasis is placed on the extent to which these dynamics impact on some Caribbean states’ reluctance to subscribe to the court’s appellate jurisdiction.
