Lessons from the Political Economy of Small Islands by Godfrey Baldacchino

Book Description

Small islands often enjoy a distinct juridical personality. Many, whether fully sovereign or not, successfully deploy this "gift of jurisdiction" to economic advantage, offsetting the potentially adverse effects of smallness, isolation and peripherality. These legal powers, reflected in supportive policy and culture, are themselves key economic resources in a development strategy. Globalization can be richly asymmetrical, offering lucrative opportunities for differentiation and nice strategies for small island jurisdictions. This book documents such lessons from a most unlikely group of North Atlantic Islands.

Books By Author Godfrey Baldacchino

Case for Non-Sovereignty by Godfrey Baldacchino Case for Non-Sovereignty, Paperback (September 2014)

This is the first collection to look critically at sub-national island jurisdictions. It examines their multi-level governance, international diplomacy, disaster management, offshoring strategies, economic development, and other expressions of negotiation and engagement with larger players, especially with metropolitan parent states.

Independence Movements in Subnational Island Jurisdictions by Godfrey Baldacchino Independence Movements in Subnational Island Jurisdictions, Hardback (May 2013)

The dynamics for any moves for political independence in the 21st century are very different from those of the 20th. The aspirations of former colonies to independence are grinding to a halt; the rationale for self-determination is increasingly driven by strategic and pragmatic economic arguments, and not so much by nationalist appeals.
