Cayman Islands Government

Constitutionally Smart

Know your Constitution.

This week (Monday, 28 February) GIS Spotlight meets up with Constitutional Commission members, looks at how a new law gives the vulnerable a voice and explores ways to increase access for the disabled.

A country's constitution sets the framework for all its legislation. People should therefore know, understand and protect their constitution - something the Constitutional Commission is making sure happens.

Join us as we talk to commission members on their functions, goals and plans for the future. They also tell how people can get involved in the governance of their country.

The Protection from Domestic Violence Law, 2010 was passed last year. We join an inter-agency information session where participants heard how the law supports a holistic approach to thwarting domestic violence.

Tune in to hear how the new law will help people to break the silence by, amongst other things, expanding the definition of domestic violence and allowing for harsher sentences.

Finally, come with us for a walk through the perfect house - from a disabled person's viewpoint. See how little things can make a big difference when it comes to accessibility.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
