1. Call for Papers: Caribbean Law Review Special Issue on “Unhealthy Food, Alcohol, Tobacco and the Law”. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as chronic respiratory illnesses, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and some cancers, are the leading cause of deaths and premature deaths globally. This is particularly evident in the Caribbean region which  has the highest NCD mortality rates in the Americas. The Caribbean Law Review plans to publish a special issue on “Unhealthy Food, Alcohol, Tobacco and the Law” in the Spring/Summer of 2023.The goal of this special issue is to take stock of the current state of NCD risk factor regulation and highlight the challenges and potential solutions associated with the adoption or implementation of recommended legal interventions related to these products. The Review is seeking articles of 6,000 – 8,000 words or shorter commentaries that analyse, from a legal perspective, the regulation of unhealthy food, alcohol, and tobacco. The special issue will be co-edited by Nicole Foster (University of the West Indies – Cave Hill) and Isabel Barbosa (O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, Georgetown University). Provided the Covid-19 pandemic allows it, they would like to host a preparatory workshop at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus (Barbados) for invited and selected participants. Travel bursaries will be available for participants who need them. To submit a proposal compete this form by 31 July including an extended abstract of 500-800 words, which details the main arguments that your paper will tackle, as well as the methodology you will use, and a short CV (1-2 pages).
