Venezuela’s Expanding Claims to Guyana’s Territory - Dr. Odeen Ishmael

Dr. Odeen Ishmael

Venezuela’s decree of May 26, 2015, projects yet another extension of that country’s claim to Guyana’s territory. Previously, the Spanish-speaking republic had generally restricted its spurious territorial assertion to the actual land area—except in the declaration of a previous decree in 1968—but now that is extended into Guyana’s maritime waters as far as the 200-mile limit in a north-easterly direction to abut the maritime Guyana-Suriname boundary. This enlargement of the Venezuelan claim is obviously a blatant contravention of international law and will not be condoned in any way by the international community.

Expatriates and Returning Home

Toronto, Canada - When expatriates leave their homeland to seek a future elsewhere, it is not very often that they return to resettle in the country of their birth. As they get older and become established, some plan their retirement by buying real estate somewhere warm but avoid Guyana. Others stay where they have taken up residence and a small percentage look for opportunities to resettle in the homeland.   

Restarting a life in Guyana can be as simple as buying some land, building a home and living off of a North American pension amount. For someone who wants to reintegrate into the Guyanese working environment, this is another matter. It can be an exciting venture if properly thought out but expatriates need to be open minded. Being brought up for decades in a French environment, I knew that integrating into the Guyanese working world would have its challenges. But first for me, the political landscape would have to be stable and, for years, I did not feel right in leaving my new hometown.
