The CCF Research team is the advocacy arm that aims to provide the supporting function that carries out regular monitoring. It is involved in a number of specific projects, which monitor and evaluate the current state of affairs in the country as related to CCF’s pillar areas of:
1. Good Governance, Citizenship and Human Rights Education;
2. Facilitating a Pathway to Sustainable Democracy; and
3. Countering Racism and Promoting Multiculturalism
These projects and ongoing activities allow the organization a platform from which it can critically analyze State policies, national planning and development projects.
The Research Section works closely with all other teams of CCF and external stakeholders that specialize in CCF pillar areas. Internal and external stakeholders play a key role in CCF’s advocacy, strategic planning and internal continual improvement efforts.
Some of the current areas of research for CCF in 2013 include:
- CCF Perception Index Survey 2012
- CCF Education in Ba 2012
- Peace and Governance Barometer 2013
- Constitution Research
- State of Youth Organization Research
- Elections Research
- Fiji’s compliance to the International Convention for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
Research papers produced aim to open dialogue around these critical issues.
