Scope and content

“The most vital role played by the newspapers in the Solomon Islands has been as a forum for public debate. The tradition was set originally by The Kakamora Reporter published between 1970 and 1975. Set up as an alternative to the government-controlled media, the paper set about generating discussion on some of the main policy questions in the years leading up to independence. Many of the issues raised in The Kakamora Reporter - like foreign relations, foreign investment, resource exploitation, the social changes associated with urban growth, the most appropriate education system, tourism, decentralisation - are as relevant now as they were then.” (Ian Frazer, Pambu, Vol.5, No.5, May 1997.)

Nos. 1-46, Jun 1970-Jul 1975. See Finding aids for details.
