Caribbean Integration Law

Chapter 14 outlines the history underpinning, and nature of, the two Caribbean regional integration courts: the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) and the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal (ECCA). Examining each court’s composition and different forms of jurisdiction, the chapter focuses primarily on their original, or treaty interpreting jurisdictions. It examines both the advisory and contentious proceedings that can be maintained before each tribunal. It critically analyses the several types of contentious disputes that may arise before the two courts, including disputes between states, between the organization and states, referrals from national courts, and applications by persons. It examines the rules regarding intervention and third parties, and generally compares the early jurisprudence of the CCJ to that of the ECJ. It highlights the CCJ’s decisions related to treaty interpretation, the rule of law, judicial review, and remedies (including state liability).

Keywords:   Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal (ECCA), referrals, individual applications, third parties, treaty interpretation, rule of law, judicial review, state liability, remedies
