UWI Professor disappointed in the lack of implementation of existing child protection laws in Dominica
UWI Professor Julie Meeks is disappointed in the lack of implementation of existing child protection laws in Dominica & the Caribbean region. She is advising that all policy makers be “shamed into getting things done.”
Meeks says “Where we have legislation in place, it is not implemented. Where we have a strong an NGO community, they are not speaking with the Police, or where we have a strong court system, which is nowhere,” she said. “We’re not getting it right; we’re not getting the synergies together.”
Meeks was speaking at the Ninth Annual Bernard Sorhaindo Memorial Lecture, held at the Fort Young Hotel, on Thursday night.
