2015 Sexual and Gender Based Violence Working Group Meeting - Suva, Fiji



Pacific Islands Law Officers' Network

PILON is a network of senior public law officers from Pacific Island countries,

including Australia and New Zealand, which focuses on common legal issues

within the Pacific region. PILON was established in 1982 and holds meetings annually.

At the 25th meeting in Kiribati in February 2007, PILON changed its name from the

Pacific Islands Law Officers’ Meeting (PILOM), reflecting members’ desire for

emphasis to be placed on the information-sharing role of the organisation.

The PILON Secretariat is the coordination mechanism for PILON and is

responsible for progressing the PILON Work Plan and assisting with

organisation of the annual meeting. The Secretariat has been based in Apia,

Samoa since early 2011.

In November 2014, Kiribati hosted the 33rd PILON Annual Meeting.
