Enroll now!

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • How did the Caribbean states become tax havens?
  • How did they make the national languages of the settlers ?
  • What happened to the spiritual beliefs that allowed them to transcend slavery?

AIIC's Switzerland Region invites you to a one-day trip to the Caribbean, in Geneva. The seminar will be led by leading professors from the University of the West Indies (UWI)  who will share their experiences and observations of cultural, social and economic issues affecting the region.
