Civic insecurity : law, order and HIV in Papua New Guinea by Vicki Luker( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Papua New Guinea has a complex 'law and order' problem and an entrenched epidemic of HIV. This book explores their interaction. It also probes their joint challenges and opportunities--most fundamentally for civic security, a condition that could offer some immunity to both.--Publisher description

Building peace in Bougainville : measuring recovery post-conflict by Satish Chand( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This discussion paper documents the socio-economic status of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville and the extent of rebound in investment and access to services since the cessation of conflict there in 1997. Data on the level of income, the age profile of the population, the level of access to basic services, and levels of investment in residential housing were collected via a household-level survey that was administered in the four major urban centres. Analysis of these data shows that per capita income has rebounded to 40 per cent of the pre-conflict level; approximately half of the population is aged less than 20 years; and one-third of school age children are not attending school. These observations have value in assessing the extent of economic recovery following the installation of peace and the levels of public investment required for improving access to basic services

The strange career of Commodore Frank Bainimarama's 2006 Fiji coup by Brij V Lal( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Five December 2006 may well go down in the annals of modern Fijian history as the date when the country dramatically changed course - a turning point when the country finally turned. What the future holds for that ill-fated island nation state is not at all clear, nor likely to be for some time, but it is now surely beyond dispute that the 20th century, with its assumptions and understandings about the nature and structure of Fiji's political culture, effectively ended not in 2000, but in 2006 when Commodore Bainimarama executed his military coup. The break with the past is decisive and irreversible. An improbable coup has largely succeeded in destroying the foundations of the old order, and a new one is promised to 'take the country forward'. That promise for now remains just that: a promise. Everyone accepts that a race-based electoral system is counterproductive for a multiethnic democratic society, that gender inequality is indefensible, that all citizens should have equal rights, that citizenship should be race neutral. Change in a society, as in any living organism, is inevitable, constant, though it is more easily asserted than effected. But the larger question is change for what purpose? To what end, at what pace, on whose terms, under what conditions, through what means, at what price? This is the conundrum at the heart of the current political debate in Fiji. I will not attempt to answer these questions here. My purpose is not to speculate about what Fiji's future might look like under Bainimarama, but to understand the constellation of forces that served to consolidate the Commodore's coup. This, I hope, may provide us with some pointers for the future."--Page 1
