    Abstract

    (In)security in Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) has been subject to neocolonialist framings of small, remote areas in ‘need of help’ from larger powers – ideas that have been challenged by Pacific peoples who emphasise the vastness, global significance and influence, connections, and strengths found in indigenous knowledge, relations and practices (Hau’ofa 2008). There is a need to reframe security in PICTs to take into account contexts and interconnectedness, and encompasses human and environmental security.
