Summary/Abstract: Climate change is the big threat to many island countries, primarily to the Maldives which will fully sink in the case of sea level rise. then the question is whether the loss of territory is also loss of sovereignity of Maldives people. the authors argue it is not, and consider besides rigid legal and partly political science definition of sovereignty many other theories of sovereignty. Maldives could lease land in India, and there, in agreement with the Indian government, get a concession of sovereignty in which political sovereignty is gradually transferred to anthropological sovereignty.
