In the light of recent events in the Caribbean, Alasdair Pinkerton (Senior Lecturer in Human Geography) has been commenting on what the UK Government's disaster response reveals about relationships with Britain's Overseas Territories. Alasdair was interviewed for Channel 4 News as part of a piece comparing the response to Hurricane Irma of the French, Dutch and British governments, and he has also also written a piece for The Conversation, with Matthew Benwell (Newcastle University), discussing the potentially strained relationships between the UK government and the British territories in the Caribbean.
