Caribbean Constitutional Fundamentals aims to be the authoritative text that articulates, discusses, and clarifies fundamental principles of constitutional law in the former colonies of Britain in the Caribbean. It explores fundamental concepts of Caribbean constitutional law that have guided the development of the area over the last half a century since the first Caribbean countries gained independence.

This title is an essential resource for students of Caribbean public law. The book identifies the key features of the constitutions in the now twelve independent states and six overseas territories in the Caribbean and examines the core principles associated with constitutional law in this region.

In this Work, the authors trace the development of constitutional law in this region and discuss the foundational concepts associated with Caribbean constitutional law.

This title:

  • describes the history of Caribbean constitutions and the different systems of governance they establish
  • addresses the core principles of constitutional law through analysis of contemporary debates and cases in the Caribbean
  • organises the constitutional law jurisprudence that has developmed over five decades
  • clarifies contradictory and inconsistent approaches to constitutional interpretation
  • provides an authoritative source of what the law is that can be used and cited by both students and practitioners
  • deals with contemporary questions such as judicial independence in small developing countries, how the supremacy of national constitutions impacts the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the impact of globalisation and internationalisation on constitutional reform in the Caribbean
