Virtual Issue: The Falklands

April 2012 marked 30 years since a long-standing dispute over the Falkland Islands, or Islas Malvinas, culminated in a military conflict between the UK and Argentina. This virtual issue of International Affairs features a selection of articles and book reviews on the dispute, published in the journal between 1968 and 1998. The articles give insight into the historical roots of the dispute, explain approaches to the Falklands War from various points of view—Argentina’s, the UK’s and the United Nations’—and look closely at various issues at the heart of the conflict, such as questions of sovereignty and self-determination. The forthcoming July 2012 issue of International Affairs will feature an article by Klaus Dodds on UK–Argentine relations. This article, ‘Stormy waters: Britain, the Falkland Islands and UK–Argentine relations’, discusses the more recent developments and current diplomatic and foreign policy issues surrounding the continuing question of the sovereignty of the islands.
