The political economy of drugs in the Caribbean

edited by Ivelaw L. Griffith

This volume examines the regional and global context of the political economy of illegal narcotics operations in the Caribbean, assesses some of the political economy connections and consequences of the enterprise, and discusses some of the measures adopted to contend with the region's illegal drug challenge. Although the book's focus is on the Caribbean it also assesses the region's dynamics in global terms because global interdependence requires an appreciation of the larger context of the challenge facing the Caribbean. It probes political economy ramifications ranging from things 'strictly economic' - such as debt, structural adjustment and off-shore finance - to socio-political matters - such as crime, education and political stability. Although all the possible ramifications cannot be examined, those considered critical to the Caribbean are addressed. The work also discusses the multidimensional responses to the illegal narcotics enterprise, including education, rehabilitation, law enforcement and anti-money-laundering measures.
