Publications: Monographs

This series is intended to disseminate research findings of the research staff of the Institute, the teaching departments of the various Faculties of the University of the West Indies as well as professionals in regional and governmental institutions.

Two aspects of research activity are emphasized - descriptive accounts of ongoing field work, and theoretical analyses of contemporary public policy and ideology. Submitted manuscripts are sent to two independent referees reflecting the discipline(s) of that particular research. The Monograph Series is a progression from the Occasional Paper Series which started in 1974.
