Pathways to Political Participation in Fiji: Gender, Race and Religion in Sustainable Community Development and Nation Building

Eci Nabalarua

This article is based on my involvement in the work of two women’s groups operating at grassroots level to create common pathways towards peace and reconciliation. The article first examines the emerging conceptual frameworks that formed the basis for work with an indigenous rural women’s empowerment project based in Tailevu province, Fiji. It then considers work with an urban-based multicultural women’s group that grew out of the Blue Ribbon peace vigils in Suva. The final section considers the implications of this field experience for enhanced political participation, nation building and continued peace and stability in Fiji
