Abstract: The dramatic explosion of sovereign states since 1945 has brought to life various island and archipelagic jurisdictions. To the old state formations of the United Kingdom and Japan, and former colonies of Cuba and Haiti/Dominican Republic, we have had a plethora of additions that are clearly island states: from Iceland (independent since 1944) to St Kitts- Nevis (independent since 1983). Fully aware of this trend, and, as a consequence of their significant lobbying power, the United Nations now recognises the category of Small Island Developing States (SIDS). A UN-led review of their development challenges and prospects has taken place every ten years, starting with Barbados (1994), Mauritius (2005) and Samoa (2014).
