Pacific Nation or neighbour: Australia's relationship with New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the Pacific

Nicholas Ferns, Helen Bones

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Australia's relationship with its Pacific neighbours varies considerably according to the neighbour in question. As a former British settler-colonial society, New Zealand has been an important part of our shared history at key points. Elsewhere in the Pacific, Australia's dominance, including its previous colonial power over Papua New Guinea and the economic exploitation of the Pacific Islands and their peoples, are some of the topics that will be covered in this chapter.
