Abstract

In the Pacific, human rights debates often focus on political and economic discussions, leaving issues related to culture and language aside. Yet the potential loss of language and culture has been identified as being of great concern to many within the region. This concern is also apparent on an international level with a growing number of international declarations and other documents focusing on the area. This article focuses on the attempts of one community - the Rotumans - to 'safeguard' language and culture. The paper also reviews the compatibility of these efforts with various international agreements.
