Oseania

Oseania karakteriseres av sin rike kulturarv, unike økosystemer og strategiske betydning.

Regionens rolle i internasjonal politikk påvirkes av Oseanias strategiske beliggenhet, naturressurser og miljøutfordringer. Oseania spiller en nøkkelrolle i globale spørsmål, som klimaendringer, spesielt på grunn av regionens sårbarhet for stigende havnivåer og ekstremvær.

Loss of Tonga’s telecommunication – what happened, how was it managed and what were the consequences?

In January 2022 the subsea volcano Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai in Tonga had a major eruption which also cut the country’s communication lines nationally, between Tonga’s inhabited islands and the outside world. The damage led to a complete halt in international communication (a “digital darkness”) which meant that, in the period immediately after the outbreak, not much was known about the extent of the damage in Tonga. Due to very limited access to contact with both the authorities and the population of Tonga, it was only during overflights carried out by the Australian and New Zealand air forces that one could begin to map the extent of the damage and the need for assistance.

The GeGaLo index: Geopolitical gains and losses after energy transition

This article presents the GeGaLo index of geopolitical gains and losses that 156 countries may experience after a full-scale transition to renewable energy. The following indicators are considered for inclusion in the index: fossil fuel production, fossil fuel reserves, renewable energy resources, governance, and conflict. Some of these represent potential gains; some represent losses; and some the capacity of countries to handle changes in geopolitical strength. Five alternative versions of the index are developed to work out the optimal design. First, the energy resource indicators are combined with equal weights to create two simple versions of the index. Next, governance and conflict indicators are included to create three more complex versions of the index. The index provides useful pointers for strategic energy and foreign policy choices: geopolitical power will be more evenly distributed after an energy transition; Iceland will gain most; Russia may be one of the main holders of stranded geopolitical assets; China and the USA will lose more geopolitically than foreseen by other analyses. The index also indicates a lack of emphasis in parts of the literature on space for renewable energy infrastructure and on domestically sourced coal for the current strength of countries such as China and the United States.

Noreg og New Zealand - felles utfordringar, felles løysingar?

15. mars i år ramma tragedien New Zealand, då 50 personar blei drepne under masseskyting i Christchurch. Likskapane med terrorangrepa i Oslo 22. juli 2011 var påfallande. Måten New Zealand har takla angrepet på, har også mange likskapar med korleis vi her heime slo ring om felleskapsverdiar. New Zealand og Noreg deler mykje i synet på verda, både når det gjeld verdiar og utanrikspolitiske føresetnader. Korleis kan vi samarbeide, sjølv om vi er på kvar vår side av kloden? Det skal visestatsministeren og utanriksministeren i landet , Winston Peters, snakke om når han gjestar NUPI
