No State Is An Island
Connected Governance in the South PacificBook - 2008
What is the future of governance in the South Pacific? Will the dominant form of governance in 30 years still be each (micro) state trying to do everything by itself (governing alone)? Have we reached the limits of decolonisation? Looking ahead, will the two referenda (in 2006 and 2007) on self-governance in Tokelau be regarded as the 'high-tide mark' of decolonisation? In No State is an Island Andrew Ladley and Derek Gill explain how instead of 'governing alone' there is scope for 'governing together' with governments choosing from a spectrum of cooperation. State can do some things by themselves, but not everything. Increasingly, governance will be shared at local, national and pan-regional levels. Governing together, rather than alone, is the logical future - indeed, it is already starting.
