Please note that Bermuda is not listed in Country Reports for Human Rights Practices for 1992. Also Bermuda does not have diplomatic representation in Canada and the United States. According to a representative of the Caribbean Association for Feminist Research Action (CAFRA), a non-governmental organization based in Trinidad and Tobago, which does a lot of research on women and violence in the Caribbean, Bermuda is the only English-speaking state in the Caribbean with no links to CAFRA.
