Efforts in the Caribbean on repatriations are gaining momentum.
However, former Association of Caribbean States, Secretary General, Dr. June Soomer, believes there is need for a lot of communication, dialogue and discussion with the citizens of the region on this topic.
Dr Soomer is a member of the St Lucia Reparations Committee.
Speaking during an interview on the Power Breakfast Programme on Power 102 Digital on Monday, Dr Soomer commented on progress made in this area in some Caribbean nations like Jamaica, Guyana, .St Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda.
She said involvement at the school level also takes place adding education on the issue alone is not enough as there is also need for what she described as internal self-repair adding government input and support are vital.
