Aid donors increasingly believe that development depends on 'good governance' . Recipients of grants and loans are scrutinised for their adherence to democracy, the absence of corruption, and their willingness to carry out public sector reform. This book is about issues of'governance' and 'good government' in the South Pacific, where small, mostly democratic, developing countries are relatively dependent on foreign aid. Issues of good governance are prominent in the recent unrest over the Sandline mercenaries contract in Papua New Guinea, and in the review of Fiji's constitution that led to its readmission to the Commonwealth. They are also expressed in the increasing international pressure for public sector reform.
