Does anyone here have any information on the Caribbean in the terms of the pros and cons of the various islands, the best places to look for work (I am an academic researcher, Social Sciences and am looking to relocate to the USA or the Caribbean).

I know very little about the Caribbean except that I won't be considering Jamaica as I've heard that it can be very violent! Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Contact Oshun Auset

She is knowledgeable.

And...In spite of what you might hear, she is really harmless.

Hey JWC! What's that supposed to mean? Confused

CLARE,

I know a site that actually gives statistics and info on this subject. It will take me a while to locate, but I'll post it as soon as possible.

I agree about Jamaica. But unfortunately it is one of the most developped countries also. Would you only be interested in the English speaking countries... or are the Spanish and French speaking countries a viable option for you?

Off the top of my head...the Bahamas and Grand Caymon(where a lot of Jamaicans move for work and to escape the violence) are two of the more economically stable/low crime islands.

It also depends what your expertise are. Any employment preferrences?

Thanks very much for your help. I would only be considering English speaking countries. I am looking for a job primarily in a university as a researcher although I could also teach. I could also apply for research jobs in social policy organizations but I don't know of any in the Caribbean. In terms of my expertise, I have a PhD in Social Policy/ Public Policy (specializing in health issues).
