HIST408 Australia and New Zealand in the Pacific

The changing nature of social, political and economic relationships of these countries with the Pacific Islands.

The focus here is: Australia's and New Zealand's interests in and relationships with the Pacific Islands and with each other in relation to those islands. Until the period of decolonisation, it concentrates more on the perceptions of these countries in regard to the Pacific and less on the islands' views of the two states. It aims to investigate continuities in perceptions and policies, as well as change. It considers areas of consensus, as well as contention.
