"Globalisation: Islands Adapting to Change"
29 May – 1 June, 2012
The Virgin Islands (BVI)

Welcome to the online home for the Islands of the World XII Conference 2012. This conference is being hosted by the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College, which is located in the Virgin Islands. The Virgin Islands Steering Committee is the official body, which will oversee the planning and organsing aspects of the conference. This conference is conducted every two years under the auspices of the International Small Islands Studies Association (ISISA).

ISISA is a voluntary, non-profit and independent organisation. Its objectives are to study islands on their own terms, and to encourage free scholarly discussion on small island related matters such as islandness, smallness, insularity, dependency, resource management and environment, and the nature of island life.

The 2012 conference will cover the areas of:

Agriculture and Fisheries
Economic Development
Disaster Management
Financial Services
Alternative Energy and Sustainable Development
History and Culture
Health and Social Development
Caribbean Governance and Business
Climate Change and Conservation
Education and Literature
Information Technology

This conference will be attempting to discuss and solve many of our small island issues. We now invite you to peruse this website and register for the various conference offerings. We also invite you to become a member of ISISA.
