Volume: Vol.27 no.1, 2004
Collation: p. 83-94

Abstract: The development of this tiny overseas territory is conditioned by a new balance between workers’ migrations and self-development. We will thus study first of all the wish of local politicians to reduce migration flows towards New Caledonia in favour of Metropolitan France. Then, we will analyse the report of the committee set up to consider all tracks that might lead to self-development. What emerges then is the question of sustainable development in island microcosms and the possible integration of religion or of custom in political and administrative reflection.

Title: Women's collective creativity : playful and transgressive processes for building peace in Fiji : a story from women's action for change

Author: Clery, Tui Nicola , Nabulivou, Noelene
Subject:  ART|Performance
 Community theatre
Volume: Vol.31 no.2, 2011
Collation: p. 163-182

Abstract: This paper explores the arts as a means of re-claiming, sharing and strengthening women’s storytelling, peace building and gender equality work in Fiji, through a case study of the work of the community organisation Women’s Action for Change. It will describe various aspects of the provocatively named ‘F word’ theatre production, an innovative and participatory process of collective creativity and community empowerment. WAC’s feminist peace building praxis places creative and process-centred work firmly at its centre, and honours the ongoing activism of women and girls in Fiji who are working creatively on social transformation, towards gender equality and social justice. This is a story of women purposefully and creatively making transgressions across social and cultural boundaries, claiming new spaces and possibilities for themselves and for Fiji, and playfully encouraging others to do the same.

Title: World Bank poverty analysis in Fiji : issues in methodology and policy applicability

Author: Narsey, Wadan Lal
Subject:  Incidence of poverty
 Methodology of poverty lines
 poverty alleviation guidelines
Volume: Vol.35 no.3, 2015
Collation: p. 108-126

Abstract: Quantitative poverty analysis for Fiji has become more frequent over the last five years, corresponding to the increasing frequency of household income and expenditure surveys (HIES). The Fiji Bureau of Statistics (FBS) has sponsored several poverty analyses using the 2002-03 and 2008-09 HIES data resulting in Narsey (2008), Narsey (2010), Narsey (2011b) and Narsey(2012). The World Bank also initiated a poverty analysis exercise in Fiji in 2010, using different methodology from that used by Narsey (2008) and FBS (2011) and produced parallel results which were different from Narsey (2011) in key respects. The World Bank (2011) results will understandably be the results used internationally and perhaps even locally. This paper argues, however, that the World Bank’s methodology has weaknesses when applied in the Fiji context, giving incorrect results and signals. The World Bank methodology also has weaknesses in important policy applications such as the determination of minimum wages guidelines to improve the living standards of the most vulnerable non-unionized workers in Fiji. Quite anomalously, World Bank poverty analysis in Fiji does not follow World Bank’s own expert advice for comparable situations. This paper suggests that international organisations like World Bank need to re-examine their poverty analysis methodology and policy applicability for middle income countries like Fiji where the HIES data is statistically robust, and also look towards strengthening domestic capabilities and continuity in such poverty analysis initiatives.
