Reports have been published from four research projects exploring addressing family violence in Pacific communities and cultural contexts.

The projects focused on both ethnic specific and wider Pacific populations. The research projects and reports are:

  • Cook Islands cultural concepts to inform family violence interventions and practice – literature search (Dr Jean Mitaera and students Langi Paasi and Helena Filipo)
  • Tongan ethnic-specific approaches to family restoration – scholarship research report (Sesimani Havea supervised by Dr Siautu Alefaio-Tugia)
  • Family violence initiatives and Pacific men - literature review (Gemma Malungahu supervised by Associate Professor Vili Nosa)
  • What makes for a good marriage or partnership? - Samoan Case Study (Professor Peggy Fairbairn-Dunlop with Koleta Savaii and Eti Puni)

For each report there is also a summary document.

The Ministry of Social Development funded the research projects.
