Associate Statehood: Principles and Prospects

English Summary
This paper explores the spectrum of status options available to small polities under international law. It focuses on the status of free association, which comprises a range of options between the extremes of full independence and integration into a larger state. It provides an overview of free association arrangements to which the United States is a party, and it suggests how some aspects of these arrangements could serve as useful models for the Faroes. It also indicates some considerations
that might enter into a decision to construct a formal free association relationship, and the steps that could be taken to move in this direction.
