Safety, Security, and Accessible Justice: Participatory Approaches to Law and Justice Reform in Papua New Guinea
The author examines the law and justice reform partnership between Australia and Papua New Guinea, focusing on the importance of implementing reform that is both culturally and politically appropriate. Explanations for the failure of western law and justice solutions are suggested. The paper recommends the adoption of restorative justice approaches, reintroducing and empowering the village court system, and supporting and making better use of community justice organisations.
