QUT C4J member, Dr Danielle Watson along with Jose Sousa-Santos, and Loene M Howes have recently published a policy forum piece to ANU’s Asia & the Pacific Policy Society.
This piece discusses the unique geography of the Pacific Island region and its growing attractiveness as a regional crime hub. The authors discuss the enduring questions about the response capacity of regional law enforcement and argue that in order to combat transnational crime in the Pacific, larger states must allow local partners to take the lead on development.
The Asia & the Pacific Policy Society is a community of scholars, policymakers, researchers, students, and the policy-engaged public.
