About Us

The Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC)  is the premier trade policy training institution in the Caribbean. We train and build the capacity of young professionals and key stakeholders to effectively interact and negotiate with global, regional and national institutions. At the SRC we also provide research and outreach services for the wider Caribbean in trade, industrial and development policy matters. 
The SRC actively engages 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 the linkage between 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. 
In keeping with the UWI strategic plan, the mission of the SRC is to contribute to the enhanced competitiveness and sustainable development of the Caribbean region through its training, research and outreach initiatives.
