Caribbean Integration Law

Chapter 4 introduces the primary, secondary, and administrative organs of both CARICOM and the OECS. It examines their natures, competences, and decision-making processes. It contrasts the qualified unanimity voting rules required for decisions in the supreme organs of both organizations, with the qualified majority voting allowed for CARICOM’s secondary organs. It briefly analyses the potential of CARICOM’s Assembly of Caribbean Community Parliamentarians and the Charter of Civil Society, and of the OECS Assembly and Commission. It suggests that these more representative bodies, and the human rights enshrined in the Charter, could serve to enhance both regional organizations by introducing democratic and rights-focused discourses.
