The research history of PIDP is long and wide-ranging addressing topics of deep concern to the Pacific Islands such as private sector development, sustainable development, tuna fisheries, disaster management and response, and sea bed mining.
Currently the Pacific Islands Development Program has two policy-related publication series of note and a working paper series.
Pacific Islands Policy examines critical issues, problems, and opportunities that are relevant to the Pacific Islands region. The series is intended to influence the policy process, affect how people understand a range of contemporary Pacific issues, and help fashion solutions. A central aim of the series is to encourage scholarly analysis of economic, political, social, and cultural issues in a manner that will advance common understanding of current challenges and policy responses.
Sampe titles in this series include:
- Micronesians on the Move: Eastward and Upward Bound
Francis X. Hezel, SJ
- Education in Pacific Island States: Reflections on the Failure of 'Grand Remedies'
The Pacific Islands Brief series seeks to stimulate discussion by providing concise overviews of contemporary issues in the Pacific Islands region. It is available exclusively in electronic format.
Sample titles in this series include:
- Won by a Dictator? The 2014 General Elections in the Republic of Fiji
- A New Regional Pacific Voice? An Observer's Perspective On The Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF), Inaugural Summit, Denarau, Fiji, 5-7 August 2013
The prepublication works of the East-West Center Working Papers series are written by EWC staff and Visiting Fellows.
