About

The Faculty of Political Science and the Centre for Small States offer a Master in Small State Studies - Small States in Europe at University of Iceland.

Overview

The Master in Small State Studies - Small States in Europe at University of Iceland offers a detailed study of small state theories based on the literature on the state and the international system. 

It also emphasizes:

  • the opportunities and constraints facing small states in Europe
  • how they are affected by and have responded to the process of European integration
  • new security threats
  • globalization and other challenges.

Special attention is devoted to the Nordic states and their reactions to European integration. Another particular focus will be on Iceland's position - as a small state - in the international system. A detailed study of small states in Europe and internationally has never been so important. A vast majority of member states in today's European Union are most often categorised as small states.
