THE Solomon Islands National University (SINU) ongoing initiative of dialogue will have its 9th talk centered on reform federal constitution of Solomon Islands.
The speaker who will be speaking on the matter is Mr Angikinui Francis Tekatoha.
The talk will base on his research carried out in relation to Federal constitution of Solomon Islands, analysis of research data on the federal constitution drafting process and the draft constitution substance is informed by a post- modern framework.
The post-modern framework emphasises reform which seeks to replace the current Unitary Constitution with one firmly anchored in traditional cultures and governance;
This is basically a ‘Home-Grown’ Constitution which rejects the current modernistic structure of government and removes it from the knots of colonial concepts.
Mr Francis holds a Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy from Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand (1990) and a Master’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology from London University, Goldsmith College in the UK (2002).
Currently he is working on a PhD research proposal which focuses on the reform federal constitution of the Solomon Islands.
The event will be held tomorrow, 5-7pm at the Kukum Campus Lecture Theatre.
