Abstract

Identifying precise sources of political influence in Fiji has always been difficult. Tradition, provincialism and religion have all been identified as major factors. This commentary, based primarily on ongoing research for a pilot study to be published later, shows that aspects of what can be deemed as 'new culture' in Fiji are also an important tool for analyzing influence. Accordingly, the media - as a corner stone of this 'new culture' - should also be understood to be one of the major influences on political viewpoints in Fiji.
