In Brief

This two-part series is based on a speech given on 28 May 2018 at the Australia Awards Women’s Leadership Initiative at the Parliament of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

In Part 1 of this In Brief series, the author described some of the challenges in Papua New Guinea (PNG) today: the way custom can conflict with state law; the difficulties in upholding elements of our constitution that relate to equality; and what happens if we allow our institutions to be weak and ineffective. He also described how he thinks we can fix these problems — by respecting the rule of law, the constitution and democracy. But in this second part, he focuses on ethical leadership and gives some examples from his career which he thinks show how leaders can act in ethical ways when confronted with difficult situations.
