Description of this Book
The report on the Nuku'alofa reconstruction project and why the Government of Tonga dumped it. Shoot the Messenger is the report on the Nuku'alofa reconstruction project that was authorised by the Prime Minister of Tonga in April 2011. The report was not well received by his office and has never been released. What was so dangerous about this report that the Prime Minister's Office felt compelled to hide its content from public knowledge? Teena Brown Pulu, the report's author, sets the research that underpinned it in the political context of Tonga's struggling democratic reform, a small island developing state in global financial crisis, and the current government which operates by responding to varied interests and pressure groups, rather than as a coalition with a comprehensive social and economic vision. She offers a critique of factors producing a weak democratic state subject to the power of aid donor countries and regional policy in the South Pacific Islands, and entangled in how to systematically modify governance and society.
