Abstract

This paper reports on the construction of a governance index for Fiji Islands for the period 1985 to 2003. The governance index has three core dimensions, each a composite of several indicators. Time series for each of the three dimensions of governance, as well as for the overall governance index, are presented in a range from zero (poorest achievement) to 1.0 (best achievement). The indices indicate that Fiji's governance performance was very adversely affected by the coups of 1987 and 2000, with the Rule of Law dimension being the most adversely affected. The index constructed provides a basis from which to monitor future governance performance.
