    Abstract

    Affirmative action programmes are designed to alleviate discrimination against individuals and groups. As debate continues in Fiji about the validity of the conservative approach to affirmative action a number of questions need to be asked. What are the monetary costs? Is there a basis to justify affirmative action policies for indigenous Fijians? Have affirmative action policies reached the targeted population? Is the policy constructive or counterproductive? Does it lead to the violation of the civil rights of other communities in a plural and a multi-ethnic society like Fiji?
