- Papua New Guinea: a nation of twenty nations? Tertiary student attitudes to national identity
- Scambary, James; Feeny, Simon
- This paper was presented in the panel 'Pacific nations? Understanding attitudes to national identity in Melanesia and Timor-Leste'. The three papers in this panel present the preliminary findings of a new survey of attitudes to national identity among tertiary students in Solomon Islands, PNG, and Timor-Leste. The findings cast new light on the attitudes of potential future elites towards regional, ethnic, intergenerational and linguistic faultlines in the region, and the challenges of building a cohesive sense of political community and national identity.
