This study applies and expands Senís concept of development as freedom using Jamaica as a case study. Using quantitative data acquired from the Center for Migration and Developmentís case study on Urbanization During the Years of Crisis in the Caribbean (1993), this research analyzes the impact of the entrenchment of garrison communities on Jamaicaís overall development in terms of the freedoms allotted to individuals within society. The methodology used for testing the hypothesis that garrison entrenchment has constrained individual level freedom presents findings from a quantitative analysis of the relationship between garrison entrenchment at the community level and individual level freedom. The implications of this study contribute to development theory and policy, emphasizing the Jamaican case but also offering comments that may apply more generally.
