As the official blog of the Islands Society, The Islander is intended to increase awareness about our organization, our research, and our programs. It is also designed to provide an open space where we can promote greater collaboration and interaction with you and other members of our community.
A few months ago, the Islands Society issued an open call to young scholars across the Pacific Islands region to submit an essay on a contemporary security challenge facing the region. Specifically, we asked them to answer: “What is the biggest security threat facing Pacific Islanders today?” In the end, we received submissions from five countries across the region. These submissions were then reviewed by our staff and the selected essays were professionally edited.
