After 55 years of independence, the Caribbean island broke with the Crown and became a republic. This new status brings with it challenges and obligations for authorities and citizens, Guadalupe González, a Mexican political analyst and internationalist, told Telescopio.

The late November ceremony where the former governor Sandra Mason become president of the new republic has presence Prince Charles, who points to the serenity in which the transition is taking place.

But it was also in Britain’s interest to break away from its colonial and slave-owning past: Barbados was occupied by the British in 1627 and became one of its first slave colonies.

The island became independent in 1966 but retains Queen Elizabeth II as head of state and a parliamentary monarchy regime.

“This is about change governance and governance that reflects an internal balancing force but also means a strengthening of the flow of discussion observed across the region,” Guadalupe González, a Mexican political analyst and internationalist, told Telescopio.

Antigua and Barbuda, Belize and Canada are some of the countries where the British monarchy continues present but France and Denmark also have territories in the Caribbean.

“Barbados is an expression of that discussion and a movement that supports full independence,” González said.

Interviewees also pointed out that this total sovereignty implies “a lot of freedom and a lot of internal and external responsibility.”

Among the most relevant challenges the island has to face are pandemic, development, and climate change. But also participation in integration and cooperation mechanisms, including the European Union and the United States.

According to analysts, despite the complete separation at the political level from Britain, Barbados will have a special place in commercial relations with London, also in cooperation and close “traditional and family ties” will be maintained.

This new status will strengthen the role of the state in regional forums, for example on development issues and climate change.

“The voice of Barbados was and will continue to be important.”
