Prof Regina Scheyvens

Professor & Co-Director - Pacific Research and Policy Centre

School of People, Environment and Planning

My research focuses on the relationship between tourism, sustainable development and poverty reduction, and I have conducted fieldwork on these issues in Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, the Maldives and in Southern Africa. I am also very interested in gender and development, sustainable livelihood options for small island states, and in theories of empowerment for marginalised peoples. A new collaborative project (with Glenn Banks) explores the possibilities and limitations of corporate social responsibility (in the tourism and mining sectors) in contributing to community development in the Pacific.


Roles and Responsibilities

  • Programme Coordinator (Development Studies)
  • Primary Investigator (along with Glenn Banks) on a Marsden project (2013-15) examining "Harnessing the power of business: the contested involvement of corporations in community development initiatives in the Pacific"

Current Projects

Project Title: The land has eyes and teeth: customary landowners' entanglements with economic systems in the Pacific

External commentators regularly assert that customary practices around land are a ‘constraint’ to economic development in the Pacific. This project turns this proposition on its head, exploring how Pacific communities have been able to establish distinctive models of engagement that allow them to pursue economic development while retaining control over customary land and upholding community processes and values. While land is conventionally understood as a commodity, we draw upon the notion of land as ‘assemblage’ (Li 2014) which counters this narrow economistic perspective. Pacific people view land in a holistic manner which embraces cultural, social and spiritual elements. Implicitly “the land has eyes and teeth” points to people’s deep understanding of the power of the land and its ‘mana’, which demands respect. This fundamentally influences how customary land development is negotiated. Our project seeks to explore the diverse relationships that adhere around such business engagements to illuminate what makes for success for businesses on customary land. A scoping survey will help to identify four case studies of successful cooperatives and family businesses which will be researched, utilising a Vanua Research Framework and Critical Appreciative Inquiry. We anticipate that our research will construct a new way of theorising Pacific economies.

Completed Projects

Project Title: Harnessing the power of business: the contested invovement of corporations in community initiatives in the Pacific

The central question driving this research is "Can the community development initiatives of mining and tourism corporations operating in the Pacific bring about locally-meaningful development?" While there are increasing calls globally for the private sector to play roles in international development, there is a need for more evidence of how corporations do community development to better understand both the potential and risks associated with this. We have termed these development initiatives of corporations Corporate Community Development (CCD), and will explore how they can potentially narrow the spaces of development or, perhaps, actively contribute to community empowerment, the promotion of human rights and social equity. This research will extend conceptualisation of the private sector's roles in community development by building on fieldwork at four tourism and mining case study sites across the Pacific. We will adopt a novel, qualitative multi-scalar methodology that brings in the perspectives of the corporations, states, communities and other actors. Responding to a recognised lacunae in the literature this research will examine the value of these activities from the perspectives of affected communities, and advance theorisation of the relationship between capital and community.
