The aims of the Islands Commission are:
to urge the European Institutions and Member States to pay special attention to the islands, to acknowledge the permanent handicaps resulting from their insularity, and to implement policies that are best suited to their condition.
to foster interregional cooperation between islands, especially on issues in direct relation with their insularity.
The Islands Commission is directed by the assembly of its members (which meet generally twice a year), by a Political Bureau (with one member per country), and by its President.
An Executive Secretary is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Islands Commission, with the backing of the CPMR Secretariat. The Commission is entirely financed through an annual contribution paid by its members.
The Islands Commission is occasionally invited to work together with EU institutions or certain national governments on account of its expertise on island issues.
