Earlier this year, a security pact between Solomon Islands and China reactivated patronizing discourses that frame the Pacific as Australia’s backyard. With a new government in Canberra pledging to move beyond geopolitical manoeuvring and listen to the concerns of its Pacific neighbours, this panel reflects on how Australia’s engagements in Solomon Islands have been experienced by Solomon Islanders.

What challenges are Pacific journalists facing as they report on issues of regional and global significance?
