Faculty of Social Sciences


This year Social Sciences copped three of the awards in the Research Week Awards Ceremony.

Most Internationally Successful Research went to former Head of the Department of Management Studies, Dr. Philmore Alleyne. He gained a Campus Award as recognition for his article entitled “Antecedents of taxpayers’ intentions to engage in tax evasion: evidence from Barbados” which was published in 2017. Dr. Alleyne’s paper was acknowledged as the Most Outstanding by the Journal of Financial Reporting and Accounting and he also received a 2018 Emerald Literati Award, granted by the publisher.

Rounding out the Campus Awards category was a joint publication authored by Dr. Alana Griffith, Lecturer in Sociology and Dr. Damian Cohall, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Medical Sciences. They shared an award for Best Applied Research for their paper “Towards Conceptualising a Policy Framework for the Implementation of Medical Marijuana in a Small Island State in the Caribbean” which was published in Drug Science, Policy and Law in September.

Deputy Dean (Outreach) and Senior Lecturer in Political Science, Mrs. Cynthia Barrow-Giles received a Faculty/Institute Award for Most Outstanding Research for work on electoral politics, national integrity systems, gender, corruption and governance.
