Our esteemed colleague David Commissiong, Barbados’ ambassador to CARICOM, will speak on reparations, and current issues affecting the University of the West Indies (UWI).

Hillary Beckles

In solidarity with our colleagues at the University of the West Indies (UWI), we are putting on this event, to discuss the recent failure by the UWI Council, to offer immediate reappointment of current Vice-Chancellor; Professor Sir Hillary Beckles, who is also Chairman of the CARICOM Reparations Commission (CRC),.

One of the catalysts for the conversation on UWI, was the previous report from the university, on its governance strategy, to which our colleagues and comrades at UWI, have expressed concern; https://uwi.edu/chancellorscommission/docs/GovCommission-2020.pdf.
