Abstract : Jersey provides an example of an island territory having gradually entered into global networks up to become an offshore financial center among the most active and the most reputed. This development has found expression in a sharp increase in its population and has important consequences on economic, environmental and social fields. But, as a territory which cultural homogeneity had not been fundamentally called into question until the middle of the last century, it also fears a loss of identity. The paper examines the different consequences of this evolution as well as the main strategies carried out by the States of Jersey to face it. A special focus is given to cultural aspects, through the promotion of a Jersey nation endowed with symbolic attributes.
