In this article, issues of social inclusion and ethnic cohesion in Fijian schooling are examined with reference to the wider political and socioeconomic context. The article argues for comparative education to attend more to the socio-historical specificity of particular educational contexts and to the educational effects of globalisation processes and local responses to them (Little, 2000; Crossley & Watson, 2003; Ninnes & Mehta, 2004, and Zajda, 2005).
