We are pleased to present this issue of 'Island Studies IO/OI', consisting of a selection of papers presented at the International Conference on Education in Small Island Developing States organised by the University of Seychelles last year. The theme of the Conference was "Rethinking Education in Small Island Developing States".

The present publication is a just appreciation of the efforts put in by a young university to place research high on its agenda, despite being constrained by limited resources. The launching of a number of research initiatives in Education and Culture, as well as in the Blue Economy, bears testimony to the will of the University to position itself regionally and internationally as a knowledge centre, with an advocacy role in favour of small island states. The initiatives were aptly placed in perspective by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dennis Hardy, at the Conference opening ceremony when he referred to the mission of the University to contribute to the Seychelles knowledge-based economy.
