PERISCOPE

Occasional Analysis Paper Series

‘Periscope’ is the occasional analytical paper series of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s Regional Programme Australia and the Pacific. Just like the real-world sighting instrument, Periscope is meant to broaden our view–taking in perspectives from different angles. In this instance, it seeks to bring together perspectives from Germany, Europe and the Australia/Pacific region in order to augment our understanding of contemporary issues in the area of foreign and security policy as well as energy, economic and social policy matters.
