Sjálvstýrisflokkurin (known in English as, variously, the Self-Government Party, the Independence Party, and the Home Rule Party) is a liberal political party in the Faroe Islands. It is currently led by Kári P. Højgaard.
Sjálvstýrisflokkurin traditionally supported greater autonomy for the Faroes within the Kingdom of Denmark, but in 1998 it agreed, as part of a coalition deal with Tjóðveldi and Fólkaflokkurin, to support national independence for the Faroes.
