He “highlights policy dilemmas for Canberra, as Australia extends its strategic partnerships with France and the United States, at the same time as Fiji and the Melanesian Spearhead Group are taking a more active and independent role on regional and international issues.” [this 45 minute podcast is introduced by Prof. Stewart Firth and was recorded at a public seminar given at the ANU on 7 May 2013]
