Description

The Centre for Diaspora Studies (CDS) is one of the five centres established at The University of Fiji to instill in individuals the recognition and appreciation of the movement of people and how this transition has affected their lives and their livelihood. The CDS is one of the foremost global centres of excellence on the history of emigration and of immigration, subjects of great current political, social, economic and cultural interest both within and beyond the academy. While Fiji will always remain a core area of interest, increasing attention is now and in the future being given to comparative studies, generic Diaspora themes and the migration histories of other ethnicities.
