This short report provides an overview and review of EU-Pacific Climate Change Policy and Engagement from a Social Science and Humanities perspective. Alongside an outline of the historical background and contemporary mechanisms that frame EU- Pacific partnership relations in reference to climate change, this report provides an outline of the SSH research literature produced in respect of Pacific peoples responses to climate change, and across the academy more generally. Finally, this report provides a commentary on the characteristics of current discourses carried by policy and engagement, and an analysis of the distinctive features that the SSH perspective reveals and which emerge from a close understanding of Pacific peoples’ own concerns. The review suggests how EU-Pacific engagement might draw upon SSH research evidence and methods to better approach these emerging policy concerns.
