Impact of Trump Politics and Policies the Focus of Final HLSCC Lecture

The H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) 2017 Spring Community Lecture Series concludes on Thursday, April 27th at 6:00pm at the Eileene L. Parsons Auditorium with a look at the “Politics and Policies of the Trump Presidency and its possible impacts on the BVI and wider Caribbean”.

Two days ahead of the Trump administration’s first 100 days, the renowned author, scholar and international lecturer Dr. Max Hilaire, will address Trump’s foreign, trade, and tax policies which has at their core “Making America Great Again” and the possible impact on the wider Caribbean, with a particular focus on the BVI. Dr Hilaire anticipates that the projected change to the US tax policy in the plan could impact the BVI’s position as a leading international finance centre and a US dominated tourism destination. This change in policy is designed to make it more attractive for US corporations and individuals to do business within the US.

Dr. Hilaire is Professor & Chair of the Department of Political Science at Morgan State University. He is the first person of colour to complete a Ph.D. in International Law at Columbia University in New York and brings a wealth of expertise and experience in international relations. His expertise includes Public International Law, International Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law, United Nations Law, and US Foreign Relations Law. He has consulted for the Department of State, United States Agency for International Development, the Africa Center for Strategic Studies at the National Defense University in Washington, and various international organizations. He has helped mitigate conflicts in Ghana, Angola, Mozambique, Malawi and Nigeria, and is a frequent media contributor on domestic and international affairs.

Dr. Hiliare’s lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with local panel guests Mr. Russell Harrigan, CEO of Oyster Global Marketing and Chairman of the BVI Tourist Board and Mr. Robert Briant, Partner at Conyers, Dill & Pearman law firm. Ms. Shaina Smith, Managing Director of Smith and Associates and host of Vigilate Dialogue TV show will moderate the panel discussion. An audience question and answer session will conclude the event.
