Youth, gender and coalitions for change in PNG: mobilising on sorcery accusations and related violence


The next generation of leaders in Papua New Guinea are seeking new ways to confront major challenges such as gender inequality, sorcery accusation related violence, youth unemployment, and corruption.  Are the views of young people, particularly young women, being properly represented in PNG? How can PNG’s citizens be empowered to contest and change the status quo? How can Australia support local organisations to drive positive change?

The Voice Inc is PNG’s foremost youth-focussed civil society organisation, with a vision for a world where generations of young people are driven by purpose and are confident in the value of their contribution to their communities, their nation and the world. This panel discussion is an opportunity to explore these issues with the co-founder of The Voice Inc. and the eminent Chair of its Board.

Serena Sasingian, CEO of Digicel Foundation and co-founder of The Voice Inc.
Dame Meg Taylor, Chair of The Voice Inc and former Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum
Professor Miranda Forsyth, Professor in the School of Regulation and Global Governance, the Australian National University
