Abstract: Territories like American Samoa, Anguilla, Aruba, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, the Cook Islands and the Faeroes are sub-national island jurisdictions (SNIJs). They all share some measure of autonomous government, and are easily construed as independent states-in-waiting. Yet most of these territories exhibit no urgency to become independent. Instead, they appear to have decided that there are political and economic benefits accruing today when island territories are autonomous but not sovereign.
Description: Most of the papers in this volume were previously published as a special issue of The Round Table: Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs, Vol. 95, Issue No. 386, September 2006. This volume is dedicated to Peter H. Lyon OBE, in grateful acknowledgement of his generous support and service to the Island Studies programme, its faculty and students at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada, over many years. Peter's contribution to the development of the Institute of Island Studies and to the interdisciplinary graduate programme in Island Studies at UPEI has been exceptional, as has been his unfailing support and enthusiasm for our research and publications in Commonwealth outlets, including The Round Table.
