Pacific Island Security Management by New Zealand and Australia: Towards a New Paradigm – Stephen Hoadley

“This paper explores the causes, phases, courses and modes of interventions in the South Pacific Islands and in East Timor by New Zealand and Australia, draws lessons, and makes recommendations on future interventions. The paper concludes that New Zealand and Australia are fashioning a new, less tolerant paradigm of relations with South Pacific Governments, one that may legitimise interventions in the future that were unthinkable in the past. The new paradigm may resonate positively with post-9/11 thinking in many parts of the developed world, but will remain contested in the developing world.”
