BARBADIAN AND OTHER Caribbean people have been encouraged to examine the ways in which they define democracy and human rights.
The call has come from chairman of the Barbados Non-State Actors Panel, Rodney Grant, and Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Chris Sinckler.
During the launch yesterdat of a $250 000 small grants scheme for non-governmental organizations established by the European Union Delegation to Barbados and the Easter Caribbean, Grant said human rights went beyond things like access to education and clean water.
“I will also urge grantees to take the opportunity to look at how we can as a civil society seek to redefine and reshape our own notions of democracy as a notion of human rights as well,” he said. (NB)
