Title: The effectiveness of the destination websites in promoting linkages between visitors and the community in Tonga

Author: Towner, Nick
Subject:  Community participation
 Internet
Volume: Vol.36 no.2, 2016
Collation: p. 90-107

Abstract: Whilst tourism has brought Tonga potentially significant prospects for job creation and local business ownership, many tourists lack knowledge about the cultural experiences on offer at their holiday destination. This signifies a lost opportunity to form linkages between foreign tourists and the Tongan community. This study analysed the content of 40 Tongan websites to see how effectively they promoted linkages to community based tourism industries. It found the majority of websites had very weak content on local handicrafts, food and cultural events and were ineffective at promoting linkages between tourists and the community, thereby reducing the potential for local community participation in the tourism industry.

Title: Exploring the capability approach with the bargaining model : a new methodologies for gender-sensitive poverty measures in Fiji

Author: Chattier, Priya
Subject:  poverty
 gender
 capability approach
Volume: Vol.31 no.1, 2011
Collation: p. 13-30

Abstract: Poverty measurement has previously been treated as a gender neutral enterprise. Typically, poverty is assessed at the household level, whereby all members of the household are treated as either poor or nonpoor, ignoring the differential deprivations that might be experienced by different household members. The discussion in this paper centres on two objectives: to highlight the gaps in the literature, notably the persistent insensitivity to gender, within mainstream approaches to poverty analysis in Fiji; and to introduce the capability approach as a means to conceptualise and assess gender inequality and women’s well-being in Fiji’s context. The paper attempts to map out the ways in which we might conceptualise and operationalise methodologies for gender-sensitive measures of poverty that are capable of reflecting the experiences of both women and men.
