Stuart Harris, ‘Economic Aspects of Pacific Security’, IR Working Paper 1992/6, Canberra: Department of International Relations, Research School of Pacific Studies, Australian National University, October 1992.
This paper looks at economic/security interactions in the Pacific region under five headings: economic growth, power and security; trade links and security; socio-economic disparities and instability; state systems and the security sector; and institutional arrangements. Its conclusions draw on the paper’s discussion of both specific security issues and the conceptual problems of analysis.
