Abstract

[Excerpt] Key points
• Pacific social work research and evaluation approaches ought to align with a
Pacific-Indigenous research paradigm.
• A Pacific-Indigenous research paradigm includes assumptions about reality,
knowledge, values and methodologies from within Pacific worldviews.
• Pacific research approaches are increasingly being applied in research with
Pacific communities, including: kakala, vanua, talanoa and fa’afaletui.
• The Strengths Enhancing Evaluation Research (SEER) approach is an
example of the application of Pacific-Indigenous evaluation in Hawai’i.
• Decolonisation and positionality are important processes and considerations
in Pacific research.
