Abstract: This thesis was designed to find out what young people perceive multiculturalism to mean. The research was, ultimately, guided by three main factors. These were, the research questions and accessibility and availability of sources on data required. Multiculturalism has been used loosely in Fiji since Independence and was the main focus of the Ministry of Education's policy-action document Education Fiji 2020. In the face of increasing ethnic conflict in Fiji, it is important to see exactly what young people think about life in a multicultural society and the impact that multicuturalism has on their development of cultural identities. It is argued, that learning about multiculturalism and through socialization that students could develop the skills, attitudes and more importantly, the values needed to survive in the multicultural context, to live and learn together
