Papua New Guinea

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    Beginning in the 1950s and continuing into the 1960s, Papua New Guinea’s state system was imposed on thousands of ethnic and social groups throughout the country’s territory. Modern political institutions developed and refined over hundreds of years elsewhere were introduced to PNG in less than 20 years. The first national elections were held in 1964 for the National parliament and a mere eleven years later, PNG was granted its independence from Australia.
