Managing Custom and Managing Conflict in Papua New Guinea. 


For decades a variety of  governments in Papua New Guinea have been attempting to remove or limit the allegedly economically backward impact of customary land tenure regimes in the country.  Yet although members of the new emerging elite often  promote policies in which custom is presented as a problem, in practice their attitude is often ambiguous.  The problem that state bureaucrats and business leaders face is not so much one of grassroots villagers’ stubborn attachment to customary relations and practices, but rather the elite’s inability to control the contexts in which customary ethics and obligations flourish or are rejected; a perspective that is not limited to Papua New Guinea alone, but has global resonances.
