Islands Knowledge Institute was founded to build knowledge created by island peoples and within island spaces, both physical and theoretical.
We do this through research and dissemination as well as through contributions to policy and programming frameworks.
A central emphasis is building the capacity for research set within islands frameworks. This is accomplished by promoting leadership and participation by island researchers in research:
- into issues of importance to island peoples and societies;
- into theoretical and disciplinary problems which can benefit from research in island settings;
We are headquartered in Solomon Islands, but have an active presence in Vanuatu and Aotearoa/New Zealand. We have a strong interest in collaborations throughout the world with researchers and institutions with shared interests and values.
