Dr. O’Brien contributes a chapter to “Legal Transfers in the Caribbean History”

Dr Derek O’Brien has contributed a chapter to a collection of essays on Legal Transfers in Caribbean History. Dr O’Brien’s chapter focuses on the ability of the citizens of Commonwealth Caribbean countries to participate in the amendment of their Constitutions as a means of redressing their Constitutions’ perceived lack of autochthony; Commonwealth Caribbean Constitutions being not home-grown but rather the creation of the imperial Parliament in Westminster.

The collection is being edited by Victoria Barnes and Emily Whewell of the Max Planck Institute of Legal History and will be published by Cambridge University Press.
