Abstract:     
This article explores the spectrum of status options available to small polities under international law. It focuses on the status of free association, which comprises a range of options between the extremes of full independence and integration into a larger state. It provides an overview of free association arrangements to which the United States is a party, and it suggests how some aspects of these arrangements could serve as useful models for the Faroe Islands. It also outlines some considerations in designing a referendum on political status, based on the experiences of Québec, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
