ECCB hosts 16th annual Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture

Dr Vaughan Lewis, Professor Emeritus, Institute of International Relations of the University of the West Indies, St Augustine campus, will share his perspectives on “CARICOM and the Caribbean in a Changing International Order” when he presents the 16th Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium at the ECCB Headquarters on November 2.

During the period 1964 – 1982, Professor Lewis served at various tertiary academic institutions in the United Kingdom and at the University of the West Indies.  He was appointed the founding Director General of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) in July 1982 and worked at that organisation until 1995.

Dr Lewis, a native of Saint Lucia, was elected as a Member of the House of Assembly of the Parliament of Saint Lucia in April 1996, and served as the Prime Minister until May 1997.  He has also published widely on regional integration, the behaviour of small states in the international political economy, relations between the major powers and developing states and relations between the Caribbean and Latin America.

Since 1996, the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has been hosting the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture series in honour of the memory of Sir Arthur Lewis, Nobel Laureate in Economics, who made a significant contribution to Caribbean regional integration.

Following the lecture, the ECCB will present the 3rd Annual Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Book Award to the Dominica State College.  The award, which is valued at $2,700, is presented annually in alphabetical order to a selected college in each member country of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.
