New Publication on Human Security in Oceania

Associate Professor Paul J. Carnegie and Professor Victor T. King of the Institute of Asian Studies at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (IAS @ UBD) have just published a chapter on human security in Oceania.

Entitled “Mapping Circumstances in Oceania: Reconsidering Human Security in an Age of Globalisation,” this chapter appears in the new book Mapping Security in the Pacific: A Focus on Context, Gender and Organisational Culture (Routledge 2020).

In their chapter, Carnegie and King “contend that the field of human security (which tends to be dominated by the disciplinary concerns of international relations, development and security studies) needs to engage more fully with a range of sociological and anthropological concepts to maintain its relevance and gain greater analytical purchase on the multiple insecurities facing Pacific Island Countries (PICs) of Oceania in the twenty-first century.”
