It was in the aftermath of riots that bunt the heart of Nuku’akofa, and around the 2007 Reconciliation and Civic education conference that the Tongan PM’s Civic education adviser asked whether Tonga could have a CCE.
Tongan conversations identified some structural issues those interested or may become interested in a Tongan CCE may consider.
“Membership may be broadly based so that citizenship education may be developed with a whole of government rather that a silo approach.
‘Leaders should be sought from Parliamentary, ministerial, noble, royal, media, educational, legal and ngo circles.
“The structure should accommodate people with divergent backgrounds.
‘Management of the TCCE’s plans and activities should be efficient and properly resourced.
