Abstract

166 Pitcairn low single figures. Once young people move abroad--usually to New Zealand--to advance their education, they rarely return. In addition, with only a handful of women being of childbearing age, the birthrate is not high enough to sustain population levels (UK Department for International Development 2015). So apart from a rising number of births, there are two other options for increasing the population: the return of former residents and their families, and new immigrants coming to the island. In order to help facilitate these, the Pitcairn Island Council (pic) in 2013 agreed to a repopulation plan to stabilize the population at around fifty. In the face of the extremely limited initial interest on the part of diasporic Islanders and new immigrants in settling in Pitcairn, the pic undertook a review, which was completed in November 2015. A key part of this was a redesigned and more userfriendly website, including a new promotional film, which was intended to allow those interested in migrating to Pitcairn to begin the application process more easily and in a more informed way (Pitcairn Miscellany 2015a; pic 2015c).
