Creating Equitable South-North Partnerships

Oceanic (Pacific) women’s rights actors have insightful working knowledge and intimate lived experiences of engaging with the Global North. This research report navigates through this knowledge and experience by capturing, amplifying and representing their voices as they share their perspectives on the role of Global North organisations and the interactions they have had with them over the last 30 years.

A total of 35 Pacific Island women who have been working in the women’s rights movement space over the last three decades agreed to participate in this research ‘talanoa’ (conversations).

Led by Oceanic feminist researcher and storyteller ‘Ofa-Ki-Levuka Guttenbeil-Likiliki, this research charts a voyage towards the genuine creation of equitable partnerships and empowered relationships.
