Learning Summary: Regional relations in the Pacific
This week we have been able to evaluate regional relations across the Pacific from a historical perspective, beginning post-World War 2. In doing so, we have been able to investigate and analyse the emergence of regional and sub-regional associations across the Pacific. We have also been able to think about globalisation, in particular, how the pressures of globalisation have been affecting some states across the Pacific. Finally, we have been able to identify and explain how Pacific states have managed their ‘national interest’ in a time of globalisation, increasing interdependence and cooperative relations.
