Australia and NZ need to prepare for Melanesian migration

ABC Radio Australia - February 21,2012. "Traditionally New Zealand's Pacific-born population has been made up mostly of Polynesians, but in the next few decades that's likely to change. Professor Richard Bedford is a specialist in migration studies, who has been looking at population movements in the Asia-Pacific region since the 1960s. He says that between now and 2050, Australia and New Zealand can expect much larger numbers of migrants from Melanesian countries. He says this new wave of Pacific migration is something both countries need to begin preparing for."
