Spread over more than eight hundred islands and islets in the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji’s neighbours include Tonga, The Samoas, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Nominally a parliamentary democracy, Fiji has a long history of military intervention in politics - including four coups since 1987, the most recent of which took place in 2006 and led to international condemnation. One particular area of concern for child rights in Fiji is how its rapidly developing tourist trade, combined with the relative poverty of some parts of its population, might be facilitating child prostitution and “sex tourism” from overseas.
