Executive Director

3:30 PM REGIONAL SECURITY SYSTEM: CONVERGENCE OF SECURITY AND DISASTER RELIEF

          Overview of the RSS Mission to ensure the stability and well-being of Member States through mutual cooperation, in order to maximize regional security in preserving the social and economic development of our people
          The RSS was created out of a need for a collective response to security threats, which were impacting on the stability of the region in the late 70’s and 80’s.
          In October, 1982 four members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) (Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines) signed a MOU with Barbados to provide for mutual assistance on request.
          This gave rise to the birth of the RSS. St. Kitts and Nevis became a signatory in February, 1984 and Grenada in January, 1985.
          The Treaty establishing the RSS was signed at St. George’s, Grenada on 5 March 1996 replacing the MOU. The System has the status of an international organisation and enjoys legal personality
