About this product
- DescriptionTerritories like American Samoa, Anguilla, Aruba, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands and the Faroes are sub-national island jurisdictions (SNIJs). They all share some measure of automous government, and are easily construed as independent states-in-waiting. Yet, most of these territories exhibit urgency to become independent. Instead, they appear to have decided that there are political and ecomic benefits accruing today when island territories are automous but t sovereign. In an uncertain world, a substantial degree of automy, respect and protection for local culture and identity, reasonable provision of employment opportunities, welfare and security by a larger and benign metropolitan state, have collectively weakened most local thrusts for independence. In spite of the mandate of the United Nations Committee on Decolonisation, there is a strong case to be made today for n-sovereignty, and it is the SNIJs that provide clear evidence.
