Pacific Islands Political Studies Association Conference

Democracy, Sovereignty and Self-Determination in the Pacific Islands

From 25 – 27 June 2019, the ANU Department of Pacific Affairs will be co-convening the PIPSA (Pacific Islands Political Studies Association) conference with the University of New Caledonia, under the theme of Democracy, Sovereignty and Self-Determination in the Pacific Islands’.

In 2019 this theme has particular resonance following the New Caledonian referendum, the relisting of French Polynesia on the UN list of Non-Self-Governing Territories, the forthcoming referendum in Bougainville, violence in West Papua, as well as the existential threats to the Pacific region posed by climate change and rising sea levels. Conference sessions will be in English and in French, covering topics including evolving forms of sovereignty in the Pacific; climate change; security; decolonisation; international relations; land rights and natural resources; and gender and politics.

The keynote address will be delivered by Colin Tukuitonga, Director-General of the Pacific Community: ‘Self Determination and Development in the Pacific Islands: Who is Driving the Agenda?’
