Drawing on selected readings, this review introduces key theoretical positions and assumptions about women’s political leadership and translates them into the Melanesian context. It also identifies assumptions underpinning key questions relating to the appropriateness of donor assistance to activities and programs designed to support democratic governance in CDI‟s focus countries (Indonesia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Vanuatu and Fiji).
