EWMI Programs in Fiji

2010-2013

Following the most recent coup in 2006, Fiji’s interim military-dominated government has rejected attempts at domestic and international dialogue, while postponing elections until 2014. In response, EWMI sought to build Fiji’s civil society capacity to promote democracy and human rights in the country through the Promoting Dialogue and Tolerance in Fiji (PDTF) project. Under this U.S. Department of State-funded project, EWMI and its international partner, the Dialogue Advisory Group, worked with a coalition of Fijian NGOs to explore ways of initiating and developing an ongoing dialogue between the government of Fiji and the NGO community.
