In Decolonising Governance: Archipelagic Thinking, Paul Carter explores how to approach regional governance afresh. He does so on the understanding that well-intentioned methods to address certain matters that concern him perpetuate ‘neo-colonialist assumptions about authority, vesting them in the language of administrative prose and the cartography of territory’ (p 1).
