Caribbean integration and the future Caribbean-EU partnership is one area addressed under the recently established Memorandum of Understanding between ECDPM and the Institute of International Relations at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago. In the run up to the EU-Latin America/Caribbean Summit of Heads of State in mid-May in Madrid, the current Spanish EU Presidency, with the support of ECDPM, will stimulate reflection on the future of the Caribbean-EU partnership.
