PNG: Devpolicy Blogs in 2017-18

By Devpolicy Blog Editor

June 2018

This fourth collection of Devpolicy Blog posts on Papua New Guinea brings together some of the most engaging writing from 2017and 2018.

It has been a significant time for PNG and has included the aftermath of the PNG election, natural disasters and APEC preparations. There has been considerable growth in Papua New Guinea readers of the blog, reflecting the interest in the wide variety of research, analysis and opinion we have shared during the year.

We’ve grouped this collection under six headings: after the elections; governance and policymaking; the economy; education, health and communications; ending violence and international perspectives.
