The interests and issues on Access Benefit Sharing in Papua New Guinea captured in this publication are envisioned to stir a whole array of socio-political and economic questions in Papua New Guinea. Some of the major issues have been highlighted in the different subject matters ...in the respective chapters and there is also an expectation that other local and national issues will emerge that have not been manifested to date. However, with this publication it is essential for developments in the Access Benefit Sharing to contribute in a positive way through an appropriate national policy and law to respond to Kwa's reminder: The government has to make a serious commitment to its people and the environment through the reformation of the natural resources sector to comply with the constitutional directive. Successive governments have paid lip service to the development of a coherent system that will adequately cover the management of the natural resources for the benefit of the present and future generations. The time to act is now and not tomorrow.Read more

The free and fair conduct of an election is a strong indicator of the democratic state. Where the democratic process is usurped by intimidation, bribery, corruption and violence, the whole election and standing of the members of the legislature are brought into question. And for ...a small and weak democratic state such incidences can result in political instability which often threatens the very survival of the nation-state. In this context, it is usually the judiciary that plays an important role in the preservation and promotion of the democratic process. In the electoral process, the judiciary plays the role of the referee, ensuring that the players in the election field play out the election game in a free and fair manner--playing within the bounds of the law. The role of an active, independent and strong judiciary in the electoral process gives credibility to the electoral process and confidence to the elected members of the legislature. This book highlights the pivotal role the judiciary has played in promoting democratic principles in Papua New Guinea through the electoral process. The vital role that judiciary has played over the last 27 years has contributed to the stability of Papua New Guinea with its diverse cultures, and projected it as one nation, one country and one people.Read more
