The Islands & Small States Institute promotes research and training on economic, social, cultural, ecological and geographical aspects of islands and small states.
Based at the University of Malta, our institute evolved from the Islands and Small States Programme which had been set up in 1989 at the Foundation for International Studies, Valletta. In 1993, the Programme was restructured as an Institute with the principal aim of enabling the organisation to offer academic courses. We offer postgraduate courses on islands and small states studies
as well as the degree of Doctor of Philosophy
