This Note, part of a study on security trends in the South Pacific, is based on library sources, interviews, and observations the author made during a week spent in Tonga in March 1988. It touches on Tongan politics and economic conditions, and focuses on a reform group in Tonga that is likely to become quite strong in coming years. An appendix presents a paper on Tonga in the 1990s by a Tongan citizen, Professor Futa Helu, who delivered it at the New Zealand Institute for International Affairs in May 1985.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Note series. The note was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.
