No exit : Next steps to help promote South Pacific peace and prosperity – Karl Claxton

«As Australia focuses on its global interests in a changing and challenging international environment, there’s a danger that we’ll lose sight of important constants of history and geography. On the surface, our near abroad shows more signs for hope than at any time since 2006, when mayhem re-emerged in Timor-Leste and Solomon Islands, Fiji suffered its fourth coup, and rioters torched Tonga’s capital. But, a decade on, causes for concern remain, and the very trends fixing our attention on global worries could raise the costs of regional problems. We don’t, then, have an either/or choice to focus on near or distant security imperatives.»
