Pacific Research Papers
This is just the beginning. Over time we will be uploading a range of research papers by acclaimed Pacific researchers and other research relevant to the region.
- The Pacific Women’s Network’s 2015 research report, ‘Missing Data, Missing Region, Missing Women’, investigates the under representation of the Pacific region and in particular the region’s women, in international reporting. Accurate data and the inclusion of all 22 Pacific Island countries and territories in the global reports of multi-national development agencies is essential so that we know that accurate representation and effective action is occurring to address local and regional needs. Increased regional and global action on the Sustainable Development Goals must not ignore the people of the Pacific and in particular, Pacific Islander women. We have included the Executive Summary and Full report.
- Associate Professor Teresia Teaiwa was an I-Kiribati and American poet, an academic and award-winning teacher at Victoria University of Wellington where she lectured in Pacific Studies. The University of Oregon described her as “a groundbreaking scholar in the research of the culture of the Pacific Islands.” It is a privilege for us to have permission to share with you some of her extensive research papers.
- Combating Commercial Exploitation of Children and Violence Against Women in Remote areas of the Western Pacific was a ‘Live and Learn Environment Education’ project funded for three years by the European Union.
The focus of this Research of Aspirations and Perceptions (RAP) Report is on the human rights impact of logging in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
