A mid-Atlantic island country, Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. For much of the late twentieth century, Iceland’s status as prosperous, stable, democratic and largely politically neutral made it well positioned to become heavily integrated into both international diplomacy and finance - the latter of which was to have catastrophic consequences for the country's banking sector in 2008. While Iceland is generally seen as having very good human rights standards, some specific issues remain - including protection of children from sexual abuse and the imprisonment of children alongside adults.
