About the Journal
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
The Caribbean Journal of International Relations & Diplomacy is a collaborative effort between the Institute of International Relations at the University of the West Indies and the Trinidad & Tobago Ministry of Foreign Affairs.The CJIRD is published quarterly in both hard copy and as an open-access, freely-available, electronic journal. An important part of its raison d’être is to facilitate information sharing between the Caribbean research and policymaking communities. In this regard, non-academics are especially encouraged to offer contributions. The CJIRD also seeks to bridge the linguistic divides between the Anglophone Caribbean and the non-Anglophone parts of the region, and envisions a broader, transnational conception of what the Caribbean 'is' to incorporate its many diasporic communities.
