Commonwealth Small States

Issues and Prospects

Small states face unique challenges as they adapt to the demands of an increasingly global economy. This publication, produced with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, surveys the range of challenges facing small states, including environmental and trade issues, economic problems, the particular challenges facing small states in development, education, and governance, and the issue of regionalism. The book provides policy-makers and parliamentarians worldwide with a detailed insight into how these issues uniquely impact upon small states, and offers recommendations on how to strengthen their capacity to exploit the new opportunities and challenges arising from globalisation.
