The project will analyse intraregional migration in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), under the ‘free movement of persons’ policy. Research will focus on the Guyanese migrant community in Barbados, in order to understand the relationships between inclusion, integration, and regional identity construction. The project evaluates the role of the CARICOM policy, as a vehicle to further the regional aspiration of deeper integration.
