Abstract: To date no analysis of Malta’s Strategic Culture has appeared in the academic literature, so that this chapter is a case of exploring unchartered waters. By taking a small state perspective, it may serve as a contribution to a neglected and understudied segment of the literature on strategic culture which mainly focuses on large states and big powers. This neglect of small states is understandable, given that they can hardly be considered as significant “movers and shakers” of the international system, unless their actions entangle larger powers in their conflicts or ambitions. At the same time, small states have been growing in importance and in number. In the contemporary global processes of regionalism and alliance-building small states matter a lot.
