  • The Contemporary Pacific welcomes scholarly articles on contemporary issues of concern in the Pacific Islands. Articles on such issues as urbanization, culture change, decolonization, dependency, and social and health problems are sought, along with articles addressing such topics as cultural movements, ethnic relations, contemporary history, regional cooperation, migration, population pressure, protection of the environment, and strategic and security concerns. Articles relating to earlier periods in Pacific Islands history, on other regions, or of a more theoretical nature, will be considered if they help to illuminate contemporary issues and concerns within the region. All articles published in the journal are refereed. The Editorial Board encourages articles that draw on the literature of more than one discipline.
