About Island Dynamics.

Island Dynamics promotes island studies and communities through knowledge exchange, cross-sectoral collaboration, research, and island studies conferences and publications.

Our research network Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos and journal Urban Island Studies combine island and urban research, producing an innovative urban island studies. Our conferences range from small, topical events to large island studies conferences. We have organised events in Scotland, Malta, Cyprus, Norway, Denmark, Macau, Greenland, and Hong Kong.

Our core values are Interdisciplinarity (joining experts from different research traditions), Cross-Sectorality (knowledge exchange between universities, governments, businesses, and NGOs), and Local Involvement (learning from and contributing to the communities in which we work).

Founded in Shetland in 2009, Island Dynamics is now based in Copenhagen, Denmark. For questions about Island Dynamics or to join the mailing list, contact director Adam Grydehøj at
