Show Summary Details


This chapter states that the crusade against crime — illegal drug trafficking in particular — has put the Caribbean settlers'lives in peril. In addition, the context of security has brooded an even greater sense of depression that the people of the region have had to face. This chapter also discusses the idea that security issues and threats will always coincide with the further advancement of globalization. The chapter also focuses on various organizations that take part in international security affairs. The chapter points out that the possibility of having a transnational policing government can only be accomplished by attaining a more cosmopolitan approach regarding the definition of police responsibilities. This chapter also stresses that peace and order is something that needs careful planning — something that cannot be achieved over a short period of time. The chapter also includes a list of interviewees as well as on-point details for policing the region.
