Current Politics

The Falkland Islands are currently a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, where sovereignty is vested in the Queen of England. The Governor exercises power on her behalf, and is also in charge of South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands. The Constitution includes an Executive Council as well as Legislative Council.

Inhabitants of the Falkland Islands were granted full British citizenry in 1983. Residents also have the option to apply for Argentinean citizenry. In fact, on April 2, 2007 (exactly 25 years after the war), Argentina reasserted its claim on the islands and asked the UK to resume negotiations regarding sovereignty. However, since the 1982 conflict, Falklanders want little to do with Argentina.
