This edition of Pacific Journalism Review was planned as a double “open theme” publication. However, a core of articles has been themed around an eclectic blend of New Zealand's unprecedented atrocity of a terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch on 15 March 2019. Two recent critical votes, Fiji's second general election since the 2006 military coup and the question of independence in New Caledonia, a French territory since it became a penal colony in 1864 has also attracted themed papers. Some of the papers were developed in association with a public seminar in November 2018, "Democracy and Media in the Pacific - Fiji, Kanaky and the People's Choice.
This is the 25th year of publication of Pacific Journalism Review.
