The Landowner Relocation Programme

Chapter 4 describes the challenges and consequences of the relocation of villages to develop the Porgera Gold Mine in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Findings are based on a survey conducted by the author in 1993 that aimed to observe the condition of the relocation houses and understand the changes as a result of relocation. The survey aimed to document women's perspectives in particular.
