30.0 points

This paper will undertake a comparative examination of changing state policies regarding indigenous rights and development in the Pacific region. The paper will consider factors influencing these changes, how 'disadvantage' is understood, how the effects of different policy approaches are evaluated, and the involvement and responses of indigenous peoples. Attention will be paid to the role of bureaucracies and policy development, both at the level of the state, and indigenous organisations seeking to achieve self-determined development.
