Papua New Guinea's choice: a tale of two nations

31 May 2005
Description

The deep divide between the tiny elite minority in Papua New Guinea who enrich themselves at the expense of the vast majority of ordinary people will continue to grow with disastrous consequences unless the Australian government's new Enhanced Cooperation Programme (ECP) is fully restored and Australian police return to Papua New Guinea. Helen Hughes and Susan Windybank argue that the ECP could serve as a catalyst for change, but only if it is accompanied by growth policies that tackle the economic stagnation that is both a cause and effect of the breakdown in law and order.
