The Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC)

The University of the West Indies (Cave Hill campus), Bridgetown, Barbados

The SRC is the premier postgraduate trade policy training institution in the Caribbean.  The Centre’s flagship Masters in International Trade Policy (MITP) Program is internationally-recognized for its leadership in practical, policy-relevant training on the trade and development challenges for small and vulnerable developing economies.   MITP graduates over the last 10 years can be found in prominent positions in trade and trade-related institutions across the Caribbean and in international organizations around the world.       

The SRC is also actively engaged in the development and promotion of policy research on the trade and development challenges of the region.  The Centre’s current research agenda is focused on both food security and international trade issues and on the region’s forward trade policy agenda.  The SRC is also recognized internationally for its policy research on diaspora, migration and development issues; the role of trade in expanding the size, scope and competitiveness of the Caribbean’s cultural industries; and the challenges of regional economic integration.  

Established in 2004, the Centre is named after Sir Shridath Ramphal in recognition of his critical role in shaping the Caribbean’s trade and economic development policies during the early days of independence for the region.
