Delivering Justice in the Caribbean: a Human Rights Assessment of the Caribbean Court of Justice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The Caribbean Court of Justice was established in 2005 by twelve Caribbean countries with the view to develop a regional jurisprudence and end the practice of sending appeals to the UK Privy Council. Some commentators have argued that human rights of the Caribbean people are better protected by a British Court. The paper explores the implications of the creation of the Court on the protection of human rights and concludes that so far the Court has mostly lived up to international standards in delivering justice in the Caribbean region.
