The final conference of the project was held at the Nordic house in Reykjavik. The focus of the conference was on Small States and the European Migration Crisis. At the conference partners presented their research on book chapters that will be part of the forthcoming book "Small States and the European Migrant Crisis - Politics and Governance" that will be published with Palgrave Macmillan at the end of the project.

The European migration crisis is a crisis that has tested the resilience and institutional structures of small states. At this international conference renowned scholars in small state studies present their research for the forthcoming book “Small States and the European Migration Crisis: Challenges and Responses”, attempting to provide a comprehensive comparative account of European Small State’s choices and strategies in dealing with this international crisis. How have small states coped with the crisis in terms of policy, resources and focus?  What have been the constraints and advantages of small scale? And how can small states become better equipped, domestically and externally, to deal with crises in the future?
