Colleagues and Friends,

SSGM’s Stewart Firth and Priya Chattier have recently published pieces on the Fiji elections at the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific website (also republished in the Sydney Morning Herald). See below for links to their pieces, as well as a couple of other relevant items: 

Changing of the guard: Despite massive hurdles, women could make history in Fiji elections… 
By Priya Chattier

Farewell Frank: Coup leader and ‘interim PM’ has not called Fiji’s elections to lose them… 
By Stewart Firth

Fiji’s fragile peace: Eight years after a coup, will Fiji finally get democracy… 
By Brij Lal

Will he stay or will he go: If Bainimarama loses Fiji’s first election in eight years, will he pack up his bags and leave… 
By Belinda Cranston

Do also stay in touch with us post-elections, as we will shortly announce details of a workshop to discuss the political, social and economic prospects for Fiji as it moves forward. Details to be announced at our events page.

Warm regards,
