The Pacific Islands Research Network (PIRN) aims to create collaboration between researchers interested in the Oceanic past and those involved in directing its future.

Whilst the many thousand island societies that define the Pacific region are culturally diverse and distinct from each other, all emphasise the fundamental importance of customary practices and traditional knowledge in shaping social, cultural, health, economic, environmental and political development and resource use, as they are drawn into the larger world system.
