The Bailiwick of Jersey is a British crown dependency off the coast of France. As well as the island of Jersey itself, it also includes the uninhabited islands of Minquiers and Ecréhous. Along with the Bailiwick of Guernsey it forms the grouping known as the Channel Islands. The defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom. However, these islands are not part of the UK but rather the Duchy of Normandy.
