QUT C4J Briefing Paper Series: Reimagining (in)Security in Pacific Island States and Territories

QUT Centre for Justice have published a new Briefing Paper titled, “Reimagining (in)Security in Pacific Island States and Territories, written by Danielle Watson, Jeremy Brice and Safua Akeli Ammama.

Dr Danielle Watson is a Senior Lecturer at QUT Centre for Justice, Dr Jeremy Brice is a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Dr Safua Akeli Amaama is the Head of New Zealand and Pacific Histories and Cultures at Te Papa, the National Museum of New Zealand

This paper explores how novel understandings and enactments of (in)security might emerge through engagement with Pacific contexts. Under the theme of ‘Reimagining Security in the Pacific’, the authors explore thought-provoking themes from criminology, history and human geography to examine contemporary developments across the domains of environmental security and state law enforcement services. Consequently, this briefing paper examines how engagement with Pacific contexts might challenge researchers to develop new ways of apprehending (in)security.
