The governance of Constituency Development Funds in Solomon Islands


Derek Futaiasi


Online Event


Tuesday, 3 May, 2022 - 12:30 to 13:30

This seminar was originally scheduled for 19 April and has been rescheduled. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Derek Futaiasi’s PhD study seeks to explore whether expanding the study of governance of Constituency Development Funds (CDFs) in Solomon Islands beyond a focus on state regulation to collective governance will be able to provide fresh insights into ways CDFs are regulated, which may suggest new ways of addressing the problems that are widely perceived to plague their administration and distribution.

This seminar is Derek’s final presentation of his doctoral candidature.
