The tiny island of Jersey ever so briefly shot to the forefront of the European refugee crisis in early February when it was revealed that an asylum seeker smuggled in the boot of the car had been jailed, but the Syrian refugee crisis has been a hot topic in the Channel Island for months.

Back in 2015, Jersey's Chief Minister, Ian Gorst, faced a furious backlash after he said the island and neighbouring Guernsey were exploring the possibility of housing Syrian families with the UK Home Office. The issue divided the islands and led to robust debate in the local media.

Jersey is not part of the European Union and, as such, is not bound to accept any refugees if it doesn't want to, but many on the 100,000-strong island feel that it has an obligation to play a role in the ongoing refugee crisis. Others say that the tiny island just doesn't have the space.

IBTimes UK visited Jersey in February to meet the locals and interview the island's chief minister and found that not only does the island already have a history with immigration from outside of the UK, but also that Jersey residents are fiercely proud of the island's long and storied history.

So much so, in fact, that Jersey has its own supplement to the UK government-issued citizenship test that new arrivals are expected to learn, which explains how the island came to have its unique political and economic status - including the foundations of its status as a tax haven.
