Flowers, Fale, Fanua and Fa'a Polynesia
book coverUNESCO's Management of Social Transformations (MOST) programme has picked up the theme of transnationalism as a dimension of globalisation in several of its major international research networks. With its focus on processes of change in multicultural and multi-ethnic societies, the APMRN has been encouraging research on four themes associated with international migration and social transformation: the issue of migration and identity; the roles of migrant entrepreneurs and business migration; irregular migration; and the implications of migration for environmental transformation.

This volume contains papers presented at a UNESCO-sponsored workshop in Apia in June 2000 exploring aspects of the latter theme. 

A distinctive focus for the papers was the implications of migration for environmental transformation in both the island homes and the homes abroad for Pacific peoples. 

APMRN Working Paper No 8 Flowers, Fale, Fanua and Fa'a Polynesia was edited by Richard Bedford, Robyn Longhurst and Yvonne Underhill-Sem with assistance from the APMRN Secretariat.
