In this text, various ways in which Caribbean courts seek to protect the citizen against the abuse of state power through the powerful tool of judicial review are presented. Illustrations are drawn from both constitutional and administrative law. While constitutional legislation seems to have settled down, administrative law litigation is on the increase, fuelled in part by an enlightened populace which is conscious of its basic rights. Between these two subject areas, there is ample illustration of how the courts utilize their power of judicial review, not only to control state legislative authority, but also to control the exercise of discretion by public authorities. through Caribbean cases, with critique made where appropriate and commentary where warranted. Some suggestions for reform are also discussed.

The establishment of the Caribbean Court of Justice sees the countries of the Commonwealth Caribbean at an important and exciting judicial crossroads. Debate, often acrimonious, continues over the abolishment of ties to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and, increasingly those influencing the debate are a more educated and articulate Caribbean people, insisting on proper governance of the area's public bodies. This new book analyzes judicial review, a mechanism for achieving public justice, through emerging case law in the hope that it will cast light on the jurisprudential evolution of Caribbean society in the twenty-first century. Bringing together cases and materials on judicial review in the Caribbean for the first time, this book examines what judicial review is, before going on to discuss the grounds, obstacles and conduct within the judicial review process. It concludes by examining the future of judicial review and justice more generally in the Caribbean. Legal professionals in the Caribbean will find it a useful and comprehensive reference tool.

This book highlights the tremendous shift in the traditional arrangements for the delivery of civil justice in the Commonwealth Caribbean, from litigation to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. Over the last quarter of a century, much learning has taken place on the topic of ADR and the literature on the subject is now voluminous. This book puts forward the thesis that the peculiar experiences of the developing world ought to help reshape our traditional notions of ADR. Furthermore, the impact of globalisation on the developing world has brought with it special and peculiar challenges to our notions of civil and criminal justice which are not replicated elsewhere. This book will appeal to a wide readership. The legal profession, students of law and politics, social scientists, mediators, the police, state officers and the public at large will find its contents of interest.
