UCCI invites scholars to present papers

| 13/09/2010

(CNS): While the second international conference hosted by the University College of the Cayman Islands hosts is six months away, the college is already calling for papers for presentation at the conference, which next year will focus on ‘Leadership, Governance and Empowerment in the Caribbean’. Anticipated topics range from ethics in government, the psychology of leadership, the civil service and the political directorate, leadership in education, and governance in dependent territories, to cultural issues related to empowerment of men and women in Caribbean societies.

The conference takes place at UCCI 17 and 18 March 2011, and scholars and other practitioners in related disciplines are invited to submit by 30 December abstracts of papers for presentation at the conference.

At the inaugural conference held in March of this year several presenters were drawn from the local community. "We were delighted at the quality of, and interest in, the local presentations, and we urge persons who have special knowledge and experience in fields related to these topics to put forward their ideas for consideration," said Dr Livingston Smith, director of the Department of Research and Publications at UCCI.

Local presenters were joined by many scholars and other practitioners from the Caribbean and the United States. For this conference, organisers hope that interest will be sparked from even farther afield.

A comprehensive list of potential topics may be obtained by contacting Dr. Livingston Smith, at lsmith@ucci.edu.ky. Recommended length for abstracts is 250-300 words. These should be sent to Dr. Mark Minott, at mminott@ucci.edu.ky, or Professor Jennifer Williams, at jwilliams@ucci.edu.ky.

Full papers are due by end of January 2011.
