Building Peace in Bougainville

This book examines the origins of the Bougainville armed conflict, the effects of the war and the efforts made to end the fighting. Its main focus, however, is on the short and long term tasks of building a peaceful Bougainville. Contributors include activists, NGO workers and academics from Australia, Bougainville and Papua New Guinea.
