New bureau telling stories from the Pacific

Funding to for a new Pacific editor at Guardian Australia

The Pacific receives minimal coverage at a time when the region is increasingly important for geopolitical, military and security reasons. Critical strategic, social, environmental, crime and business stories are not being told.

The Institute has supported the Guardian Australia to employ a specialist Pacific editor, based in Sydney, to help address the lack of coverage in Australia.
