About the Institute

The Institute of Pacific Studies was established in 1976. The staff see their primary tasks as the development of skills and confidence in Pacific Islanders and as the production of useful research data and publications by Pacific Islanders. IPS facilitates and participates in research, writing, consultancy and teaching.

IPS concentrates on the 12 member countries of the University of the South Pacific: the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Western Samoa. Nonetheless, its other projects and publications include American Samoa, Guam, Easter Island, the Federated States of Microneisa, French Polynesia, Hawai`i, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norfolk Island, the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn and Wallis & Futuna.

Over 2,000 Pacific Islanders have had their work published in association with IPS. The Institute also assists the Pacific Writers' Forum, South Pacific Creative Arts Society (Mana Publications) and the South Pacific Social Science Association with their publications. Those publications are included in this catalogue.
