Kate's Phd entitled "The white is right? The challenge with defining social work in Fiji" examined dominant discourse within International Social Work arenas and highlighted the privileging of Western [neo-liberal] ideology in constructions of social work practice and research.  Kate has a interest in decolonising social work research and practice and learning more about the potentials offered by indigenous methodologies.  Kate has extensive qualitative experience in cross-cultural contexts.  Kate has strong links to the Pacific Island region, and has also undertaken projects in South East Asia including the Thai-Burma border.  Kate has also contributed to social policy and organisational policy design, review and implementation.  She welcomes opportunities for cross-institutional and international research collaborations
