Education Suppliers in Kiribati

The education publishing sector in Kiribati is more developed than the rest of the publishing sector due to the academic institutions such as the University of the South Pacific and educational interest from more developed neighbours. The University of the South Pacific runs the Institute of Pacific Studies and Extension Services and the Atoll Research Unit which publish a variety of journals and essays. Other educational firms include the Atoll Research Bulletin and the New Zealand-based Polynesian Society. An example of a multinational private firm is the Macmillan Brown Centre for the Pacific Studies based in New Zealand. The Centre was established in 1988 at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand to facilitate the ‘investigation and research of the history, traditions, customs, laws, and ideas of the peoples of the Pacific generally.’ The Ministry of Education, Training and Culture also publishes certain reports on and for the education sector.
