In Brief

This In Brief discusses new research undertaken by Sinclair Dinnen and Kylie McKenna in Port Moresby and the Porgera gold mine in Enga Province in early November. This was a preliminary trip with a view to doing sustained fieldwork in 2015. Sinclair and Kylie are interested in examining a number of initiatives being undertaken by Barrick Gold, the Canadian gold miner which has operated the Porgera mine since 2006. These initiatives are taking place against a history of serious human rights allegations levelled against Barrick’s own security personnel, as well as against elements of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary.
