In Brief

Important questions have been raised about the conceptual and policy utility of the concept of political settlements (Dressel and Dinnen 2014). This In Brief considers how a political settlement view could usefully inform more effective approaches to democratic governance programming in Melanesia (specifically in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands where democracy programming has been most significant), by supporting a more sophisticated understanding of politics and democracy which opens up alternative entry points for donor engagement.
