Papua New Guinea’s general election in 2007 attracted particular interest for several reasons.

English | Jan. 15, 2011 | ISBN: 1921313455 | 206 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The Southern Highlands is one of Papua New Guinea’s most resource-rich provinces, but for a number of years the province has been riven by conflict. Longstanding inter-group rivalries, briefly set aside during the colonial period, have been compounded by competition for the benefits provided by the modern state and by fighting over the distribution of returns from the several big mining and petroleum projects located within the province or impinging upon it.

English | Mar. 28, 2013 | ISBN: 1922144924 | 230 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

Intellectual, biological and cultural property rights are a powerful and debatable topic.

This book is a valuable and timely contribution to a limited but growing body of scholarship in the social and structural contexts of HIV epidemiology in Papua New Guinea.
