The symposium will explore the cultural, legal, and institutional tools available to post-colonial jurisdictions seeking to grow their economies in a rapidly changing and increasingly post-global world. It will explore this puzzle through the lens of smaller nation-states and territories in the Northern Atlantic and larger Caribbean regions. Many of these jurisdictions have struggled economically since gaining their sovereignty or increasing their internal autonomy. Others have been more successful. Scholars and practitioners will analyze the governance and institutional arrangements that have contributed to the divergence in fortune in this part of the Global South.
