Overview

The very small states of the Caribbean Community, the largest bloc of small states in the world, once occupied an important position in the world as strategic outposts as well as producers of sugar. Today, few islands depend on sugar or military arrangements; instead, their economies range from energy-producing Trinidad and Tobago, to the banana producing economies of the Eastern Caribbean. This book examines how such small nations have managed to employ their foreign policies to overcome their vulnerabilities and to project their image as active players in both the regional and global environments. They can provide lessons as well as cautionary tales to newer small states in the careful crafting and management of foreign policy in the interest of domestic development.
