Small State Studies


About the Series

Half the world's sovereign states have populations of less than 5.3 million, and over 30 have populations of less than ONE million. Clearly, there is scope to consider the impact that small size and scale (of population, civil service, expertise, talent pools, ambassadorial ranks, service providers, and so on) could have on the nature of governance, politics, international relations, economic development, climate action, transportation, etc.

This interdisciplinary new series closes the gap in political and social science literature by encouraging studies on the challenges facing small states, their characteristics and their strategies, thus galvanizing scholarship in a previously neglected area. It encourages comparative studies among small states, and between small states and larger states. It addresses the predicament of small size and scale as these impinge on institutional and political dimensions (such as public administration and diplomacy), and critically considers the issues and tensions arising from small but archipelagic and/or federated states.
