South Pacific Islands Communication: Regional Perspectives, Local Issues

Usha Harris (Editor), Evangelia Papoutsaki (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthology


This publication brings together significant scholarly contributions on communications issues by researchers working across the region. It aims to create better understanding of what affects the communication and information flow in smaller nations and how these impact on national development, governance and the creation of more cohesive societies. The value of such a publication lies in the comparison it enables between different regions and countries at different levels of development. The work of the contributing authors provide glimpses of the prevalent issues and perspectives without necessarily providing a definitive picture of this diverse region. The editors hope that the publication will draw out significant relational possibilities by highlighting the perspectives of Pacific scholars and practitioners thus contributing to the knowledge base in island studies.
