The Pacific Institute of Advanced Studies in Development and Governance (PIASDG) is an Institute under The University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji. The PIASDG promoted research and learning in the fields of governance studies and development studies particularly as these relate to the needs of Pacific Island countries. The Institute was succeeded by the School of Government, Development and International Affairs (SGDIA) in 2008 which currently houses the interdisciplinary University course, UU200 Ethics and Governance, which is required of all USP undergraduates. SGDIA programs explore how Pacific Island governments, economies and relations with the world affect the daily life of Pacific peoples, including their jobs and political voice as well as their freedoms, safety and cultural expression. SGDIA researchers work in close contact with Pacific regional actors, regularly liaising with civil society organizations, government policy makers, business, and regional and international organizations, such as Transparency International, the Pacific Islands Forum, the UN Development Program, and the Asian Development Bank.
