Foreign Policy Orientation of Small Island States: An Evaluation of the Foreign Policies of Vanuatu and the Maldives – Ali Khaleel
“Guided by the framework for evaluation suggested by G.A. Raymond, this thesis attempted to evaluate the foreign policies of Vanuatu and the Maldives to determine whether there is any justification to argue in favour of multilateralism, regionalism or bilateralism as the most effective foreign policy strategy for small island states, a sub-group wi thin the category of small states. (…) The evaluation revealed that multilateralism was more effective overall in contributing towards the security and sovereignty related objectives and the environment related objectives of Vanuatu and the Maldives.”khaleel_thesis
