Papua New Guinea: Violence Against Women: Not Inevitable, Never Acceptable!

AUTHOR(S)
Amnesty International
Security

In this report Amnesty International recommends general and specific measures the Government of Papua New Guinea should adopt to meet its obligation to prevent, investigate and punish gender-based violence against women and to provide redress to victims. Many of the recommendations have been made before but have not been acted upon. For that reason Amnesty International also makes recommendations about improvements the State should make to systems of accountability. Moreover the organization calls for support from the international community to be given to women and women’s organizations in Papua New Guinea to assist them in adopting a rights based approach to their work, in understanding the State’s obligations under domestic and international law and in devising targeted, sustained advocacy strategies designed to improve compliance with those obligations.
