Special section for Small States and Territories

Overseas Territories & Crown Dependencies: What Future in ‘Global Britain’?

It is the aim of this special section in the SST 5(1), May 2022 issue of Small States & Territories to provide a critical and sober assessment of where the overseas territories and crown dependencies stand now in ‘Global / post-Brexit’ Britain, and the opportunities and challenges that face them going forward. Indeed, this section will offer the first ever comparative and comprehensive consideration of these two groups of territories.

The special issue welcomes contributions from across the academic disciplines (political science; international relations; psychology; anthropology; sociology; environmental science; geography; public administration; etc.) that consider issues within a particular territory or group of territories, or cross-cutting themes such as governance, environmental security, geo-politics, and defence. We also welcome submissions that offer non-British perspectives. i.e. how other regions and countries view the overseas territories and crown dependencies.

We would like to offer a cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary and global assessment of these small yet important, but often marginalised and sometimes forgotten, territories.

Manuscripts will be accepted up to the end of October 2021 and should be sent to: sst@um.edu.mt. All submissions need to be according to the journal style (https://www.um.edu.mt/sst/guidelines/style).
