Abstract

The islands of Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno (commonly known as Pitcairn) make-up a single territory; the last remaining United Kingdom Overseas Territory (UKOT) in the Pacific Ocean. Pitcairn, the only inhabited island of the group, had a total resident population of forty-one – a near historically low figure – in March 2017. The review considers the main developments between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017, including the continued sustainability of Pitcairn, the impact of the on-going Brexit negotiations, and the community’s progress in adopting and embedding child safety measures.
