FIJI'S youngest presenter at a recent conference in Brussels has returned to the country proud of his achievements, one of which was having his paper selected for publishing. Sirendra Michael and his co-authors, Sunil Kumar and Karishma Devi were recognised for their efforts in writing a paper which was selected as one of the top 12 out of 160 papers.

"It also underwent three rounds of reviews and is now going to be published," said Mr Michael.

As the main author of the paper, Mr Michael was selected to attend the conference in Brussels titled 'After the Arab Spring: Rethinking the Role of Regional Organisations in Promoting Democratic Governance'.

At the conference, he presented to the hundreds of people who turned up about the role that the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS) plays in pushing for more democratic societies.

He looked specifically at Tonga, the Solomon Islands and Fiji.
