The Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) will be hosting a conference entitled “50/50: Critical Reflections in the Time of Uncertainty” on August 21 - 24, 2012 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. The year 2012 marks fifty years since the first Anglophone Caribbean nations gained independence beginning with Jamaica on August 6 and followed closely by Trinidad and Tobago on August 31, 1962.
This conference is the culmination of the Caribbean-oriented “50/50” series of meetings, workshops and conferences which attempted to comprehensively address several themes through a series of research clusters. In the past, the SALISES conferences - held consecutively at Cave Hill, St. Augustine and Mona - have attracted numerous professionals, practitioners and researchers in the fields of social, political and economic studies both regionally and internationally. This year, more than 200 distinguished scholars are expected by SALISES at this conference.
SALISES is inviting you to participate by exhibiting your products by renting a booth on the conference day(s). Your services or products will be exposed to at least 200 participants during the 4-event conference.
