Fijian Networks of Cooperation

Cooperation is an essential part of every person's life. We exchange material goods, as well as information and emotional support, with many people each day. Sharing with one another is critical to our own survival and well-being. This webpage describes the cooperative and support networks of people living in villages and settlements in Ovalau, Fiji. On our network page you can visualise networks based on the exchange of different goods, as well as support. Other pages on this website describe the research used to collect these data, as well as some of our research findings. This research is funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand, and is conducted by researchers at the University of Otago and Victoria University of Wellington.


Data Access

Upon completion of the project, anonymized data will be available through this webpage. You will also be able to view social networks through this link.
