China and Changing Geopolitics in Oceania

November 18, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Virtual - Zoom

Most Pacific Island governments welcome China’s growing interest in Oceania. Western countries, however, are concerned that China threatens their dominance in the region, triggering a geopolitical competition reminiscent of the Cold War era. This panel discusses the varied and complex nature of China’s engagements with Oceania, Taiwan’s reframing of its relationship with the region, Western countries’ responses and Pacific Islands’ management of these competing interests. Hawaiʻi is important to these discussions.
