The Falkland Islands and their Adjacent Maritime Area
This Briefing documents the origins of the sovereignty dispute over these remote islands in the South Atlantic, and traces its development over 200 years up through 1997. The British government's efforts to promote the islands' economic development in the post-1982 era, based on fisheries and hydrocarbon exploitation, are also discussed. In addition, the authors examine recent moves toward cooperative offshore development such as the two countries' Joint Declaration on Cooperation over Offshore Activities in the South West Atlantic, signed on 27 September 1995.
