Full circle or spiralling out of control ? State violence and the control of urbanisation in Papua New Guinea

Description :
In Papua New Guinea, colonial control of urban populations has been replicated in contemporary times, often in more draconian form. Eviction of urban settlers have been tied to issues of crime and urban respectability, and lingering perceptions that Melanesians should be rural residents. Strengthening alliances between land-owners and the state have emphasised intraurban inequality and hampered national development.
