Crime and Justice: Crime Prevention in a Pacific city: Examples from Port Moresby

Dr  Fiona Hukula2
2National Research Institute, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

In an effort to change the image of Port Moresby as a dangerous, crime ridden city, there has been a concerted effort to address crime by various agencies.  This paper presents initiatives from Port Moresby that could be termed crime prevention. More specifically I will discuss efforts to address crime prevention by different stakeholders within the cityscape. This includes the National District Commission, international development agencies and local networks such as Human Rights Defenders. It seeks to contribute to the discourse on crime prevention by presenting and discussing how crime prevention can and could look like in a growing city such as Port Moresby.


The society is devoted to promoting criminological study, research and practice in the region and bringing together persons engaged in all aspects of the field. The membership of the society reflects the diversity of persons involved in the field, including practitioners, academics, policy makers and students.
