Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)

Overview:
The Falkland Islands are a group of several hundred islands and islets located in the South Atlantic Ocean. An Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, it is a parliamentary democracy which maintains responsibility for internal affairs. Despite its relative isolation – it is located 480 km off of South America – the islands maintain a fierce loyalty to Britain. Furthermore, in spite of its apparent geographic disadvantage, the islands have developed an enviable economy in recent years.

External Aid/Remittances:
The Falkland Islands are economically self-sufficient, and therefore receive no aid from the United Kingdom. Defence costs, at approximately £70 million annually, are covered by the United Kingdom. Today the Falkland Islands citizens enjoy a rapidly increasing standard of living. In the 1970s, however, the economy was in serious trouble. In 1975 the British Foreign Secretary asked Lord Shackleton to conduct an economic study of the islands and their potential. The resultant “Economic Survey of the Falkland Islands,” published in 1976, has served as the blueprint for its economic renewal, although implementation did not begin in earnest until after the 1982 war with Argentina. Two aid packages, funded by the UK, were developed to drive economic expansion: 1. £15 million allocated to reconstruct infrastructure; 2. £31 million allocated for development. This development grant included funds to establish the Falkland Islands Development Corporation. In addition, an international airport and military installations were built at Mount Pleasant. Constructed in order to quell further threats from Argentina, the economic spin-offs from the construction and increased transportation links have been significant.

Industry:
Fishery, wool, tourism. Following the Argentine invasion, British scientists discovered that the surrounding waters were teeming with valuable squid. Two species were of particular note: Illex, which is sold as a delicacy in East Asia, and Loligo, which is sold in Spanish restaurants. In 1986 a 150-mile radius Fisheries Conservation & Management Zone was established, and the Falkland government began selling licences to fishing vessels (foreign fishing companies that enter arrangements to jointly own and operate trawlers with Islanders given preferential treatment by Falkland Island government when licenses allocated). This brought about a new era of financial independence, netting the government approximately £22 million in revenue annually. Conservation of the squid fishery remains a priority for the government, which spends approximately £6 million a year from its licensing revenues on conservation research. To prevent poaching, government aircraft and water vessels patrol the waters. The export of wool, which was the basis of the Falkland economy until 1987, remains a significant, albeit less important, sector. Today approximately 90 wool farms are in operation, tending to approximately 700,000 sheep. Today’s wool farmers seek to combat dwindling prices by increasing the standards of their products. Diversification has also become a buzzword within agriculture, as cashmere goats, a national beef herd, and reindeer from South Georgia have all been introduced in recent years. Reindeer were introduced to the islands in 2001 for commercial reasons; this is the only commercial reindeer herd in the world unaffected by the 1986 Chornobyl disaster.

Niche Industry:
Squid fishery, fishing licensing, wool exports.

Tourism:
Tourism is a rapidly growing sector on the islands. The emphasis is on eco-tourism and sustainability, with its natural beauty and various rare species of wildlife serving as the selling point. Currently the Falklands receive 30,000-40,000 tourists a year, the majority of these arriving on cruise ships – over 130 visited in 2004. Most of these tourists originate from the United Kingdom, the United States, and Germany.

Number of Agricultural Credit Unions:
Number of Insurance Companies:

 The Falkland pound is on par with the British pound sterling. Although British currency is accepted on the islands, visitors are expected to exchange it at the bank in Stanley upon arrival. No charge is applied for this service. The only bank on the Falkland Islands is the Standard Chartered Bank branch in Stanley. While credit cards are widely accepted on the islands, automated banking machine cards are not accepted on the islands. Business banking is also provided by Lloyds TSB in the UK. Insurance is available through local companies.

Financial Services:

Communications/E-Commerce:
The Falklands are connected to external telecommunication links via satellite. Approximately one-half of all households are connected to the Internet. Government and private websites advertise a wide variety of services in English, with a noticeable emphasis on attracting investment and tourists. Economy Openness: The Falkland Islands are courting foreign investment. The major utilities are controlled by the government.

Public Ownership:
Major utilities – power, water, roads, docks – are government owned. Telecommunications infrastructure government owned, but operated by Cable & Wireless. Fuel supplied by Stanley Services Ltd, a joint venture between Falkland Islands government and S & JD Robertson Group, a private company.

Land Use:
Freehold – private land, ownership transferable. Falklands Conservation, a registered charity, owns 19 nature reserves, totalling over 2,000 acres. Land use is further restrained by the presence of over 18,000 land mines that are unaccounted for in East Falkland as a result of the Argentine invasion. These areas are fenced off, and at present there is no campaign to remove them. Extensive land reform occurred as part of Lord Shackleton’s suggestions for economic revitalization following the Argentine invasion. Farmland, which had been concentrated in hands of non-resident companies, was purchased and redistributed. Were 83 individual farms in 1988, with most owned by local residents; prior to 1980 there were only 36.

Agriculture/Forestry:
Sheep wool. Are self-sufficient in vegetables and sheep meat.

Marine Activity:

Fishing:
Maritime claims: 12 nautical miles. Exclusive fishing zone: 200 nautical miles. In 1987 the government began selling fishing licenses to foreign trawlers operating within the Falkland Islands' exclusive fishing zone. These license fees total more than $40 million per year, which help support the island's health, education, and welfare system.

Marine Life:

Critical Issues:
Fisheries conservation. The squid fishery has been closed early in recent years due to low catches. This has raised calls for increased research into the mating patterns of squid, as well as increased surveillance for poachers. Argentina continues to claim sovereignty over the islands, which they refer to as the Malvinas, although the government has vowed to do so diplomatically. Due to full employment on the islands, there is a need for workers. This is mostly supplied by Chileans and Saint Helenians. Transportation to and from the islands remains a hurdle to surmount. With the exception of flights through the military base at Mount Pleasant to Oxfordshire, England six times a month, air traffic to the island is reliant on transfers from South America. Given Argentina’s strained relations with the Falkland Islands, and their past history of blocking traffic heading there from passing over their airspace, this remains a going concern.


JURISDICTIONAL RESOURCES

Capital:
Stanley

Political System:
Parliamentary democracy. Falkland Government: The Falkand Islands are a UK Overseas Territory. Supreme authority rests in the Queen, and is exercised on her behalf by the Governor, on advice and assistance of the Executive and Legislative Councils. The Falklands are governed internally by a legislative and executive branch. The Legislative Council is directly elected by the populace. It consists of ten members, eight of which are elected (five from Stanley, three from Camp), as well as two ex officio members, the Chief Executive and Financial Secretary. A speaker chairs the Legislative Council. The Executive Council advises the Governor on all matters. It is composed of three representatives from the Legislative Council, as well as the two ex officio members who sit in the Legislature. The Attorney General and the Commander of British Forces in the Falkland Islands attend by special invitation. The Governor serves as the Speaker. Elected Councillors have considerable responsibility for internal affairs, while the Governor retains responsibility for external affairs and the public service. Supreme Court: There are three levels of court on the Falkland Islands. The first is the Court of Summary Jurisdiction, which by practice only sits when the Senior Magistrate is unavailable. The Magistrate Court presides over most civil and criminal hearings. The top court is the Supreme Court of the Falkland Islands, presided over by a Chief Justice who resides in the United Kingdom and visits as required. Appeals against Supreme Court taken to Falkland Islands Court of Appeal in London, and ultimately the Privy Counsel.

Political Parties:
As there are no political parties, all candidates run as independents. Elections are held every four years, by universal adult suffrage, for the eight available seats in the Legislative Council. Each year three members of the Legislative Council are elected by their peers to sit in the Executive Council.

Important Legislation:
British Nationality (Falkland Islands) Act 1983: Passed by British parliament in response to Argentine invasion. Previous legislation, the British Nationality Act 1981, classified Falkland Islanders as British Dependent Territories citizens, which restricted rights of entry and stay in Britain. New legislation granted full British citizenship to Falkland Islanders. Has since been repealed by British Overseas Territories Act 2002, which reaffirmed their full British citizenship. Proclamation No. 4 of 1986: enacted 29 October 1986. Also known as the Fisheries (Conservation and Management) Ordinance 1986, it established the Interim Conservation and Management Zone, a 150 nautical mile zone around the Falkland archipelago that the government regulated. The government assumed power to sell licenses to interested fishers. Proclamation, No. 2 of 1990: enacted 20 December 1990 (amended Proclamation, No. 1 of 1994: enacted 22 August 1994). Established Falkland Islands Outer Conservation Zone a maximum 200 nautical miles from baselines, subject to boundaries with neighbouring states.

Principal Taxes:

Associated Power:
United Kingdom

Citizenship:
UK is responsible for international affairs, foreign representation, and defence of Falkland Islands. Relationship between UK and Falkland Islands outlined in March 1999’s “Partnership for Progress and Prosperity, Britain and the Overseas Territories.” This White Paper states the basis of Britain’s link with its Overseas Territories should be a partnership, with each side maintaining its clearly defined responsibilities. It also notes that the UK must allow the individual territories’ right to determining their future course.

Paradiplomacy:
Treaties: International treaties handled by Britain. In 1986 a 150-mile radius Fisheries Conservation & Management Zone was established, and the Falkland government began selling licences to fishing vessels (foreign fishing companies that enter arrangements to jointly own and operate trawlers with Islanders given preferential treatment by Falkland Island government when licenses allocated).

HISTORY AND CULTURE

History:
 First recorded landing made in 1690 by Captain John Strong of England. Remained uninhabited until 1764 when the French established a settlement on East Falkland. In 1765 the British claimed the Falkland archipelago for the Crown, and established their own settlement on West Falkland the following year. Also in 1766 the Spanish government purchased the French interests and a Spanish governor was appointed to the newly re-christened Puerto de la Soledad, which was placed under the jurisdiction of the colony of Buenos Aires. The British were forced from the islands in 1770, returned one year later, and left again in 1774 due to financial circumstances related to the upcoming American War of Independence. The Spanish garrison also pulled out in 1811, with the South American colonies in open revolt. In 1829 Buenos Aires claimed rights to the islands, as well as all previously Spanish territories in the region. Britain protests. In 1831 the Lexington, a United States sloop, destroyed Puerto de la Soledad, after three sealing ships were seized in an effort to control fishing in the territorial waters. The majority of inhabitants left aboard the sloop. In 1833 the British claimed the islands for the crown, sailing the warship Clio to a small garrison in Puerto de la Soledad. With the exception of ten weeks during the Argentinean invasion in 1982, the British have retained sovereignty over these islands.

Recent Significant Events:
The Argentine Question: The major international issue facing the Falkland Islands is Argentina’s continued sovereignty claim. This claim is based on Argentina’s claim to be successor of the former Spanish empire in the region. Successive Argentinean governments and military regimes have emphasized the state’s right to the Falklands. This has coincided with a major propaganda campaign in which the government’s claim to the islands is placed in the forefront of the public’s mind. An example of this propaganda campaign is a 1948 federal law, still in effect, which states it is a federal offence to create maps that do not include the Islas Malvinas (the Argentine name for these islands), as well as the Argentine Antarctic Sector, as part of their territory. The islands are widely represented in Argentine textbooks and on stamps, which maintains a high level of public consciousness towards the islands. Argentina’s goal of repatriating the islands seemed to be progressing in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1968 the United Kingdom, which was looking to lessen its imperial load, and Argentina unveiled the Memorandum of Understanding, which stated that sovereignty was transferable provided the Falkland Islanders’ interests were secured. The inhabitants, who wished to remain under Great Britain, fiercely protested this. The memorandum was followed by indecision on Britain’s part, leading to frustration in Argentina. In 1981 Argentina was taken over by a military junta. The following year the government commenced an invasion of the Falkland Islands, landing on 2 April. The British responded to this challenge by dispatching a Task Force, comprised of 28,000 men and 125 ships. Victory was declared by the British on June 14, which is marked as Liberation Day, the national holiday. The 1982 invasion put considerable strain on Anglo-Argentine relations. Between 1982 and 1999 Argentine passport holders were barred from entering the Falklands (with the exception of next of kin). It also hardened resolve within the United Kingdom to protect their interests in this sector of the globe. This was most evident in the creation of Mount Pleasant Complex, 35 miles outside Stanley, a military compound created with the explicit goal of thwarting any future invasion plans. Since then, relations have been mixed. Argentina and the Falkland Islands cooperate regarding fishery conservation policies in the South Atlantic Fisheries Commission, as well as in the South West Atlantic Hydrocarbons Commission. On 14 July 1999, the two parties released a Joint Statement. While not designed to solve the sovereignty dispute, it did contain a number of concessions. For example, the Falkland Islands dropped their restriction on Argentinean entry, while Argentina accepted the Falkland government’s control of immigration. Despite this, the situation is far from resolved. The Argentine Constitution still contains a claim over the Falklands, and more recent developments have proved to strain relations once again. In November 2003 Argentina banned Chilean charter aircrafts from flying over their airspace. This act negatively impacted the Falklands’ burgeoning tourism industry. In April 2004 the Argentine icebreaker Almirante Irizar made an unauthorized entry into the Falkland Islands Conservation Zone. Four months later, in August, the Argentine Families Commission cancelled its visit to the newly erected memorial to the Argentinean servicemen who died in the 1982 invasion, citing political reasons. In the face of this, the United Kingdom and Falkland Islands governments remain united in their opposition to re-opening talks on the territory’s sovereignty. National holiday: Liberation Day, 14 June (1982) Constitution: 3 October 1985; amended 1997 and 1998
