Abstract: "Jurisdiction" is not a neutral, passive or static term. It does not simply suggest a space, a place or territoriality. It signifies a legitimate and constitutionally engrained political autonomy that is thus recognized and respected by other players. It suggests a repository of powers that political actors are entitled to use, and which they may misuse, abuse, or not use at all. It proffers a series of levers, drivers or tools that allow policy makers to tweak and craft the development trajectory of their land and its citizens in specific directions. In other words, jurisdiction is a resource. In recognizing PEl as a jurisdiction in this very active and strategic sense, the emphasis is not on being a small province, but on being a Province.
