Securing A Peaceful PacificBook - 2005
"'Trouble in paradise', 'Africanisation of the Pacific', 'arc of instability', 'failed states', 'petri dish for terrorism'" "Are the dramatic labels that have been applied to the Pacific justified? Why has the Pacific experienced growing levels of conflict and political instability in recent years? What has been the impact on Pacific peoples? What can be done to avoid further conflict?" "This book, based in a major international conference held at the University of Canterbury in October 2004, seeks to answer these questions by drawing on the expertise of a diverse range of contributors, including academics, diplomats, soldiers, police, aid workers and non-governmental organisations and the indigenous Pacific people themselves"--Cover.
