Promoting island studies and island communities.

Island Dynamics creates and communicates island studies knowledge through conferences, courses, research, and consulting. We work with and foster collaboration between academia, government, business, and the third sector in order to strengthen island societies, from world cities to rural communities.

We take an internationally comparative approach to cultural, political, economic, and environmental issues affecting islands worldwide. Our events range from small, topically focused retreats to large interdisciplinary island studies conferences. We value the communities in which we work and always emphasise the production of practical results, no matter the research topic in question.

Through our courses and consulting, we help communicate knowledge and support our wider island studies activities.
