Living Dangerously – Violence against women in PNG

This is a modified extract of my longer Lowy analysis (see below) published by The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald and featuring the photographs of my colleague Vlad Sokhin. It focuses on a single, shocking event in a village outside Wewak late last year – the rape by police of a teenage girl – and the fallout. The narrative allows insights into the geographical, social, economic and legal landscapes which conspire to deny justice to women in PNG. Link here.
