  List of dependent territories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dependent areas are territories that for some reason do not possess full political independence or sovereignty as states.
The areas separately referred to as non-independent are territories that are disputed, are occupied, have a government in exile or have a non-negligible independence movement.
Wake Island: unincorporated territory administered from Washington, D.C., by the Department of the Interior; activities on the island are conducted by the US Air Force, the ownership of the territory is disputed with the Marshall Islands.

 Independence of Colonial Peoples THE ROLE OF THE UN
The territories and the dates of General Assembly approval were as follows: from 1953 to 1955, Puerto Rico (United States), Greenland (Denmark), Suriname and Curaçao (Netherlands); in 1959, Alaska and Hawaii (United States); in 1965, the Cook Islands (New Zealand); and in 1974, Niue (New Zealand).
Until the General Assembly began to assert a competence in the matter, the inclusion of a territory in the list of non-self-governing territories to which Article 73 applies was at the discretion of the administering power concerned.
For instance, in 1946, the United Kingdom did not include Southern Rhodesia in the list of dependent territories under its administration because the territory was self-governing but subsequently changed its position after the unilateral declaration of independence by the white-majority regime in 1965.

 ECOS - A Review of Conservation
The UK Dependent Territories Conservation Forum had already drawn to the attention of UK Government the fact that its support for environmental matters in the Dependent Territories was in danger of falling down a crack between its domestic approach and its wider international support.
First, this article attempts to outline what are the Territories, and the approach of the NGOs to the conservation of their biodiversity and other heritage, and later introduces the contents of this special issue.
For UK administrative reasons, some Territories are classified as "Dependencies of Dependencies", even though this relates to neither their finances nor internal government.

List of countries and outlying territories by area
Because the island went through a period of French occupation, and lies between two overseas départements of France (Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south), the island is sometimes called "French Dominica".
The Commonwealth of Dominica is engaged in a long-running dispute with Venezuela over Venezuela's territorial claims to the sea surrounding Isla Aves (Bird Island), a tiny islet located 70 miles (110 km) west of the island of Dominica.

Any such territory may, by agreement with the other contracting parties which are principal suppliers of such products at the most-favoured-nation rate, substitute for such preferential rates a single preferential rate which shall not on the whole be less favourable to suppliers at the most﷓favoured﷓nation rate than the preferences in force prior to such substitution.
The preferential arrangements referred to in paragraph 5 (b) of Article XIV are those existing in the United Kingdom on 10 April 1947, under contractual agreements with the Governments of Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in respect of chilled and frozen beef and veal, frozen mutton and lamb, chilled and frozen pork and bacon.
The imposition of an equivalent margin of tariff preference to replace a margin of preference in an internal tax existing on 10 April, 1947, exclusively between two or more of the territories listed in this Annex shall not be deemed to constitute an increase in a margin of tariff preference.

 Illinois   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
The Illini were heavily dependent on buffalo, and their defense of this dwindling resource in 1689 provoked a confrontation with the Shawnee.
Since the Illini only controlled a fraction of this territory, their cession of it was a sweet revenge upon the tribes living there who had taken these lands from them in 1769.
Since the boundaries of their reserves were established by treaty, the emigrant tribes were not forced to surrender their land, but those with excess land (and this was all of them in the opinion of the government) were pressured to sell the excess for white settlement.

 Spain
The extended, lingering, "decline" of Spain was due in part, ironically, to its spectacular successes in the 15th and 16th centuries that led to the centuries of the treasure fleets bringing back silver and gold from the American mines.
Spain claims that these territories are integral parts of Spain and have been Spanish or linked to Spain since before the Islamic invasion of Spain in 711 and returned to Spanish rule only a few years after the conquest of Granada.
This is particularly worrying for a country whose dependence on imported oil (meeting roughly 80% of Spain's energy needs) is one of the greatest in the EU.

When the user selects a region from the first selection list, the client sends a request to the server containing only the necessary information to identify both the selected region, and the form control to populate with the list of territories.
The first is the selection list object that the event handler is attached to, and the second is the selection list that is to be filled in.

The General Assembly took action on the case of Puerto Rico in 1945 by including it on the post-war list of dependent territories, he said.
In 1953, it had decided to remove Puerto Rico from the list of Non-Self Governing Territories, leaving it in a political limbo until the Committee took up the issue again in 1972.
For the people of Vieques, the withdrawal constituted a victory that must be completed with the return of the territories used for military exercises still occupied by the Department of the Interior.
