AFA6 – watch interviews with Hugh White and Katerina Teaiwa

The Pacific “step-up”: will it work and what happens if not?


 

Katerina Teaiwa discusses how Australia’s climate hypocrisy undermines its Pacific diplomacy.


 

 

Hugh White discusses the flaw in Scott Morrison’s Pacific “step-up”.

 

The sixth issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines Australia’s struggle to retain influence among its Pacific island neighbours as foreign powers play a greater role and as small nations brace for the impacts of climate change.
