    Walking the Talk: Is Australia’s Engagement with the Pacific a ‘Step up’ or a Stumble?

    The Cairns Institute Policy Paper Series Launch

    Presented by Tess Newton-Cain

    The release of Australia’s Foreign Policy White Paper late last year had been much anticipated, not least because it was the first such paper in over a decade. Notable was that the Pacific island region (including Timor-Leste) had been accorded a chapter of its own. Responses to the White Paper have been mixed. Australia’s choice of representation in the region is often mismatched, leading to squandered opportunities to establish and develop key relationships. In this paper Newton Cain presents her analysis of the White Paper and examines the nature of Australia’s engagement with the Pacific region since its publication to see what its impact may have been so far.
