Academic Journal
The article discusses the Māori kin-based model of social entrepreneurship as a model for how the Australian government could implement its aid to Southwest Pacific Island nations. Within Australia an ongoing debate persists regarding the best way to assist the Pacific Islands while allowing them to maintain their regional autonomy. The author describes New Zealand's Ngai Tahu tribe which operates on a communal model of kinship which is also competitive by nature. The author suggests that Australia could institute a similar model of developmental assistance to help Pacific cultures thrive economically by taking into consideration their traditional social structures.
