Title variants
Languages of publication
The functioning of the independent countries of Oceania is a constant struggle with the heritage of colonial era, contemporary economic conditions and the increasing influence of geopolitics and attempts to dominate by culture of the Western world (Westernisation). Different countries are coping with these challenges in a different way. Some of them have a bearing on the type of and level of crime. In addition to traditional reference points (Australia), the culture of former colonial countries (Great Britain, France, also the USA) still has a significant impact, and also China with its growing influence in this region.
