Security Threats in the Pacific


In the fall of 2015, 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, they were asked to respond to: “What is the biggest security threat facing Pacific Islanders today?” The submissions were reviewed by our staff. The finalists were then professionally edited and published on The Islander. Of these, “The Security Implications of Geopolitics and Governance in the Pacific” by Dalton Kuen-Da Lin was selected as the top submission.
