It’s now almost two decades since the signing of the Bougainville Peace Agreement – an agreement that ended nearly a decade of violent conflict and saw the creation of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville within Papua New Guinea. Significant progress towards peace has been made in the region, but legacies of the conflict still present challenges – including for former combatants and the communities they live in.
This report presents an opportunity for veteran’s voices to influence decision-making, and provides a basis for policy-making that is relevant and responsive to the interests and needs of people who are the target of these policies.
