SRC Trading Thoughts

The EU's Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism and CARICOM

Dear Friend of the SRC,

Read the latest in our SRC Trading Thoughts by Dr. Jan Yves Remy and Kaycia Ellis-Bourne.

Dr. Jan Yves Remy is Director of the Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC) at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus; and Kaycia Ellis-Bourne is an attorney-at-law and SRC trade research intern, currently enrolled in the SRC's Masters in International Trade Policy programme.

On 14 July 2021, the European Union (EU) released its long-awaited proposal for a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) which will serve as the EU bloc's first carbon import levy. As anticipated, the proposed CBAM has attracted attention among international observers, even if it has not been widely reported in Caribbean circles. In this SRC Trading Thoughts, we explain the proposed EU CBAM, and conclude with initial thoughts for further consideration by CARICOM decision-makers.

Some Reflections as I Move Into Retirement

Dear Friend of the SRC,

Read the Outgoing Thoughts by Neil C.A. Paul.

Neil C.A. Paul is the outgoing Director of the SRC who retired July 31, 2021.

As I move into another phase of my life, I am frequently asked to consider the road travelled during my sojourn and perhaps to offer my own glimpses into the future. Well, I am no soothsayer, and any attempt to see into the future is probably vainglorious, arrogant even. I do however, humbly offer some reflections of my journey for what they are worth. My intention is not to offend but rather to link the conversation and perhaps create some further food for thought.

The SRC Team
