In Brief

This In Brief is the final part in a series presenting findings from a multi-year study of sorcery accusation-related violence (SARV) in PNG in four hotspot provinces — Enga, The Autonomous Region of Bougainville (Bougainville), Jiwaka and the National Capital District (NCD) — over a four-and-a-half-year period (January 2016–June 2020). It summarises what we have learnt about who tries to intervene in incidents of SARV, and the respective efficacy of responses aimed at preventing sorcery accusations turning into physical or property violence.
