From Pasefika Proud

A lack of data regarding family violence and Pacific communities led the Ministry and the Pacific community representatives to work to improve information and evidence about Pacific family violence.

The Ministry of Social Development provided research funding for the completion of a number of research reports focusing on family violence and Pacific communities.

This was seen as an opportunity to build capability in Pacific research and to this end applications were invited from researchers to work with Pacific students to complete research projects.

Reports include:

  • Cook Islands cultural concepts to inform family violence interventions and practice
  • Tongan ethnic-specific approaches to family restoration
  • Family violence initiatives and Pacific men
  • What makes for a good marriage or partnership?
