Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the neoconservative settings in the Caribbean and Latin American region, in which the Caribbean was subsumed as it entered into EPA negotiations with the EU. An important deduction from the exploration of these settings is that the Caribbean is caught in the middle of two competing imperialisms that pull and push it in different directions. The Caribbean could transform this dilemma into an advantage by looking elsewhere, namely towards the emerging economies amongst the developing nations, and to regional unions such as the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) and Petrocaribe, for alternative visions of development to those proffered by European bloc imperialism and US-led globalization.

Keywords: Caribbean; European bloc imperialism; European colonialism; Latin America; neoconservative settings; new American century doctrine
