Davids, Nuraan – Education as Change, 2018

Clery, Tui Nicola; Metcalfe, Robin – Education as Change, 2018
The voices of Pacific women and girls have too often been excluded from Fiji's archival history.

In South Africa, with few exceptions, scholarship on the modern labour movement which emerged after the Durban strikes of 1973 tends to focus on trade unions that constituted the labour movement, strikes, collective bargaining, and workplace changes.

The testimonies and recommendations of the RCSW…
