In this session from the IN-CJ Newsdesk 2022, Professor Christopher Brown (Political Sciences and International Studies Georgia Southern University USA), and Dr Georgina Chami, (Lecturer, International Relations University of the West Indies, St Augustine Trinidad), discuss the plight of forced migrants, refugee and asylum seekers in Trinidad and Tobago during the COVID-19 pandemic. They consider the Gaps and Gains in Trinidad and Tobago’s migration policy and legal framework, and look at lessons from Latin American and the Southern Caribbean to mitigate the exploitation and victimisation of migrants with enhanced human rights, work rights and convention rights.
In addition, Dr Seemungal discusses the paradigm shift to e-justice during the lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, with emphasis on Domestic Violence Protection.
