--As mothers of the land : the birth of the Bougainville Women for Peace and Freedom( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The lights went out in Bougainville in 1990. In an attempt to force the island to give up its claims for independence, the government of Papua New Guinea imposed a military blockade, withdrawing all government and commercial services. The PNG military took control, imposed a permanent curfew and began an armed campaign against Bougainvillean rebel forces." "As Mothers of the Land is a unique account of one of the deadliest conflicts in recent decades, told not by military or political chiefs, but by those caught in the middle of the fighting: Bougainvillean women." "Bougainville is a matrilineal society, in which women are custodians of the land, but, as the conflict escalated, they became unwilling pawns in the fight to control the country's destiny. They were forced from their homes and herded into PNG-controlled 'care centres' or were forced to live on the run, fleeing to the jungle to escape violence, rape and military rule." "Normal society fractured as fear and anarchy took hold. With no access to health, education and basic community services, women were forced to call on traditional knowledge and self-reliance to rebuild a sense of community in the heart of the jungle. They also began to build a women's movement for peace and freedom." "As Mothers of the Land is a record of the years of war and the quest for peace, told by the women who lived through it. It is an essential record of the vital role women played in the Bougainville peace process and their remarkable achievements in a country torn apart by decades of violent struggle."--Jacket

"In 1999, East Timor erupted into violence following the popular vote for independence. The world watched in horror as reports of fighting, looting, arson, rape and murder were broadcast across the world. A United Nations force, led by Australians, was deployed to East Timor to establish and maintain peace. Following in the wake of Australian soldiers, Australian Customs officers arrived with a simple mission: to assist in the birth of a new nation." "Confronted by the complexities of international politics, the cultural differences of the many countries represented by the United Nations, and competing visions of East Timor's future, the officers learnt that, while everyone's idea of helping is different, if you really want to help you have to embrace the culture of the people."--Jacket

Conflict and resource development in the southern highlands of Papua New Guinea( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Deaths from the various conflicts over the past decade number in the hundreds. As a result of inter-group fighting, criminal activity and vandalism, a number of businesses have withdrawn from the province. Roadblocks and ambushes have made travel dangerous in many parts and expatriate missionaries and aid workers have left. Many public servants have abandoned their posts with the result that state services are not provided. Corruption is rife. Police are often reluctant to act because they are outnumbered and outgunned. This volume brings together a number of authors with deep experience of the Southern Highlands to examine the underlying dynamics of resourcedevelopment and conflict in the province"--Provided by publisher
