CaribbeanElections.com was developed to provide current and historical information on politics, democracy, and the electoral process for 28 countries within the Caribbean. There is a special focus on citizenship education and the importance of being involved in the democratic process. The site is designed to serve as a one-stop knowledge portal for students, educators, researchers, and the public, thereby assisting in the formulation of informed decisions – from the policy to the citizen levels.
Launched in January 2008 for the Barbados General Elections, the site now contains detailed information on elections from across the Caribbean, including recent elections in Saint Lucia and Guyana. Now in its fourth year and with visitors from over 100 countries, CaribbeanElections.com is the one of the leading portals in the area. CaribbeanElections.com is being increasingly used as a reference site for other international election portals, and academic institutions.
The CaribbeanElections portal was recently upgraded and streamlined to include information on all elections in the Caribbean. The site now features over 3,000 resources in our extensive Knowledge, Education, and Election centres. We have also included over 200 biographies on Caribbean leaders, profiles of 28 Caribbean states, and new modules on citizenship, regionalism, and democracy. We have also added the Caribbean Elections Community, a social network, to facilitate continued dialogue and sharing of information on related areas.
KnowledgeWalk Institute, a Barbados-based education and research institution, provides the portal as a public service.
