Abstract

As states which share a colonial past and a legacy of introduced laws, Pacific island countries have much in common with other parts of the developing world. Focusing on land and customary land tenure, which governs around ninety percent of the land in Melanesia, this paper uses case studies from anthropologists and NGO's to highlight how indigenous people are adapting to the demands of development
