NAR: The Caribbean Regional Seminar on Decolonization is designed to discuss possible dynamics and action concerning the 16 Non-Self- Governing Territories under the Special Committee purview in the Caribbean, Pacific and other regions, as well as the United Nations system assistance to the Territories. So says Chairman of the Special Committee Ambassador Francisco Carrion-Mena. He told the opening session that the fundamental purpose of the seminar is to find ways to move the process of decolonization forward.

TAPE: As reflected in its theme, the Seminar will focus on taking stock of past experience and on possible goals and expected accomplishments in the field of decolonization in the Third Decade. The Seminar's forward-looking theme augurs well to get fresh insights from all concerned and help us reflect on the fundamentals, the feasibility and the effectiveness of the current approach to decolonization. The Seminar is the principal and unique forum for the people of Non-Self-Governing Territories (NSGTs) to share their views and concerns and for the members of the Special Committee to listen to and inform themselves about the situation with regard to the 16 NSGTs within the Special Committee's remit, including assistance. Moreover, the Seminar provides an opportunity for the elected representatives as well as civil society organizations, NGOs and experts to convey their views about the way forward.

NAR: The Seminar is taking place in the month during which the Special Committee traditionally observes the week of solidarity with the peoples of NSGTs.
