As a region, the nations of the Pacific face continuing challenges to their economic, political, social and cultural survival. Recognising that the question of regional change whether to cooperate more closely or not 'is a key item on the agenda of Pacific Islands Forum, this volume makes a timely and crucial contribution to the debate. Providing excellent arguments about the implications for more integrated regional governance' and the agendas behind attempts to push through these reforms, Pacific Futures is essential reading for those seeking to understand how the region can move forward. In four sections, these essays address issues of governance, human rights and custom, law reform, language and culture loss, the potential for a single currency, labour mobility and development assistance. Written by academics and professionals from the region and beyond, the arguments are presented under the uniting theme of sovereignty and the idea of a Pacific community. Also including reflective contributions by some of the Pacific's most widely respected leaders such as Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, Bishop Jabez Bryce, Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi, Sir Mekere Morauta and Judge Tuiloma Neroni Slade, Pacific Futures sets a standard for discourse on regional development.
