Although there has been emigration from the Fiji islands on a large
scale since the late 1980s, there is little data available on remitting
in general, let alone informal (unrecorded) remitting. Some of the
literature on other major sources of migration from the South Pacific
(especially Tonga and Samoa) has been reviewed to help clarify the
distinctive features of the Fiji case, and to provide some indications
of the kind of study of remitting that could be made for Fiji.
This country study begins with an introduction and then contains
chapters as follows: migration from Fiji, migration and remittances in
the South Pacific Islands, informal (unrecorded) remittances,
remittances and development, Fiji: background information, Fiji: history
and society, indigenous Fijian and Indo-Fijian emigration, the migrants,
and finally, conclusion.
