Abstract [en]

Development journalism has been a key focus of discussion among journalism scholars for more than 40 years, but the focus has been firmly on African and Asian countries. This paper contributes to the study of development journalism and journalism culture by focusing on the little-researched island nation of Fiji, which has experienced considerable political instability since independence in 1970. Based on interviews with 77 of the country’s small population of just over 100 journalists, this paper finds that development journalism in Fiji takes an interesting shape that contradicts some conventional thinking. While our respondents expressed strong support for a Western watchdog style of journalism, but also supported development goals, leading to a unique mix that, it is argued, is not as contradictory as it may seem. In other area, journalists also combine Western ideals with local values. Some of the implications of recent impacts of media freedom are discussed.
