Description

The Faeroe Islands is situated roughly half way between Scotland and Iceland in the Northeast Atlantic. It consists of 18 mountainous islands, with a total land area of some 1400 sq. kilometres and a population of just over 47,000. As a self-governing territory under the sovereignty of Denmark, the Faroe Islands legislate and govern a wide range of areas in accordance with the Home Rule Act of 1948. These include the conservation and management of living marine resources within the 200-mile fisheries zone, sub-surface resources, trade, fiscal, industrial and environmental policies, transport, communications, culture, education and research.
