Chapter Summary

The EU-EPA is not a development plan but a trade agreement that would stimulate sustainable economic development. Thus, the CARIFORUM-EU EPA states that although it is a trade agreement, its foundation is the sustainable development of the Caribbean. This chapter assesses the CARIFORUM-EU EPA in the context of a variety of failed development approaches foisted on the Caribbean since the region was incorporated into the global capitalist system. The survey of Caribbean thought ably undertaken by Benn (2004) presents the different perspectives on development that emerged in the region overlooking nonetheless, the contributions in the areas of the posts and cultural studies theories in the 1990s and early 2000s. The Euro-American free trade model is the premise of the foregoing strategies that appear to be development alternatives to the current economic and political situation in the region.

Keywords: Caribbean development; CARIFORUM-EU EPA; Euro-American domination
