  • Introduction: Papua New Guinea, legal pluralism, and law and economics
  • Customary law and the state criminal law
  • Historical overview of the state, criminal law and customary law
  • Empirical study of the sanction of wrongs in the New Guinea islands
  • Legal dissonance in Papua New Guinea
  • Past reforms that failed
  • Conclusion: Reforming the prosecution process.
Papua New Guinea's two most powerful legal orders - customary law and state law - undermine the other in criminal matters. This phenomenon, called legal dissonance, can help explain the low level of personal security found in many parts of the country. It is shown that a lack of coordination in the punishing of wrong behavior is both problematic for legal orders themselves and for those who are subject to such a legal phenomenon. Legal dissonance can lead to an activity being simultaneously advanced by one legal order and punished by the other, leading to injustice, and, perhaps more importantly, an undermining of each legal order's ability to deter wrongdoing.

Papua New Guinea's village court system was introduced in 1974, partly in an effort to overcome the legal, geographical, and social distance between village societies and the country's formal courts. There are now more than 1100 village courts all over PNG, hearing thousands of cases each week. This anthropological study is grounded in ethnographic research on three different village courts and the communities they serve. It also explores the colonial historical background to the establishment of the village court system, and the local and global processes influencing the efforts of village courts to deal with everyday disputes among grassroots Melanesians.

In most traditional and indigenous societies, land is generally regarded as a totemic symbol of the spiritual ethos of the people. Land also has obvious economic and political connotations which are underpinned by the modern demands on land use and planning. The reception of alien politico-legal institutions into such societies creates tension between indigenous and non-indigenous interests and rights, thus further exacerbating and compounding issues associated with land use and planning. This is particularly so in Papua New Guinea, with its wealth of natural resources. Land Law and Policy in Papua New Guinea analyses the policy considerations which underscore the mechanisms for regulation of land use through a comprehensive study of Papua New Guinea society. Pre-colonial land issues and post-colonial land policy are summarised and followed by an exposition of basic and fundamental issues of property law. The book also deals with the more contemporary issues of natural resource preservation, environmental protection and land reform. This is a valuable resource for law students and legal practitioners in Papua New Guinea, Australia and throughout the Pacific region. It will also be of interest to land economists, specialists in estate management and government policy decision makers.
