Island Dynamics

  • Description
  • Three Core Values

    Island Dynam­ics organ­ises island stud­ies con­fer­ences, pub­lishes and under­takes research, and hosts the Island Dynam­ics Blog. Three core val­ues lie at the heart of our work:

    Internationality

    We pro­mote island stud­ies research that is com­par­a­tive and global in scope. Island com­mu­ni­ties and juris­dic­tions dif­fer from their main­land coun­ter­parts and thus require a specif­i­cally island analy­sis. With our inter­na­tional net­work of island experts, we can iden­tify com­mon­al­i­ties across hemi­spheres and social and envi­ron­men­tal divides.

    Interdisciplinarity

    We bring together a wide range of researchers from a vari­ety of method­olog­i­cal back­grounds. Cen­tral to our approach is the high­light­ing of links between island cul­tures, economies and iden­ti­ties. We facil­i­tate knowl­edge shar­ing across dis­ci­plines, rais­ing the bar for both pub­lic– and private-​sector island research.

    Cross-​Sectorality

    We bridge the academic-​particioner divide by facil­i­tat­ing dia­logue between schol­ars and prac­tic­i­pants from pol­i­tics, the pub­lic sec­tor, the arts and the busi­ness world. Aca­d­e­mics thus find out about fields in need of fur­ther research. Prac­ti­tion­ers ben­e­fit by learn­ing about aca­d­e­mic research under­taken world­wide as well as which fields are in need of addi­tional fund­ing and investment.
