The continent of Oceania, comprising Australasia and the countries of the Pacific has been founded on migration. From the first migrations more than 40,000 years ago, through to histories of colonialism in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the current points based immigration policies that several other states have started to emulate.
COMPAS has published blogs and articles on the region, but at the moment our research on Oceania is more limited than other areas of the globe. We do, however, work closely with scholars from the region, including hosting visitors and affiliates.
