|Abstract||Twelve papers resulting from the initial phase of the North Atlantic Islands Programme, which culminated in the North Atlantic Forum '98 conference in Charlottetown in September 1998, study six islands or island groups--Aland, Faroes, Iceland, Isle of Man, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island--to learn how small islands can best exploit their jurisdictional or constitutional resources to promote strategies of self-reliant economic growth. Papers discuss islands in comparative constitutional perspective; patterns of localism in a changing global system; how identity, culture, and confidence may contribute to success in the global economy; the consequences of federation for economic development in Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island; culture and economic development in Aland; constitutionalism and economics in the Faroes; Iceland's experience of independent statehood and the use made of the tools of sovereignty for economic growth and prosperity; the problem of the islands' heavy dependence on the primary sector and how the potential of the primary sector might be improved; small-scale manufacturing on the North Atlantic Rim; the export of knowledge-based services from the North Atlantic islands; and tourism and cold-water islands in the North Atlantic. Contributors include economists. Baldacchino is with the Workers' Participation Development Centre at the University of Malta. Milne is Professor Emeritus at the University of Prince Edward Island.
