Season 4 Episode 07 – Dr. Jan Yves Remy, Director of the Shridath Ramphal Centre (SRC).
Jan Yves is an International trade lawyer and Director of the Shridath Ramphal Centre (SRC), a leading center in the Caribbean for International Trade Law, Policy, and Services.
She’s had a successful career spanning over twenty years in International Trade. She’s advised governments and private stakeholders on international trade matters, focusing on dispute settlement under the auspices of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
As SRC’s Director, she coordinates SRC’s flagship Masters in International Trade Policy Programme (MITP). She also lectures on law and trade aspects of Caribbean regional integration, but that just scratches the surface. Jan Yves was a legal officer at the Appellate Body Secretariat at the WTO, where I met her.
During our conversation, she talks about the duty to give back to your community, the inspirational power of role models and education, and how the Caribbean flexes its muscle in International Trade.
We talked about the camaraderie at the Appellate Body and how this experience marked her. We also name-drop a lot, but that shows how small the world of International Trade is and how everybody knows everybody.
Jan Yves is doing a fantastic job, and she is a delightful person. I had a lot of fun talking to her, and we covered a lot. So do yourself a favor and listen to this conversation! After it, I am sure you will feel inspired.
