Brief Description
The constitution of Papua New Guinea reflects the provisions of the Bougainville Peace Agreement by providing that a referendum for Bougainvilleans on the future political status of Bougainville must be held, within the five year ‘window’, from June 2015 to June 2020. One option in the referendum must be a ‘separate independence’ for Bougainville. In 2016, the PNG national government and the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) jointly agreed on a ‘target’ date for the referendum of June 2019. This collection comprises background documents detailing the constitution of Papua New Guinea and the Bougainville Peace Agreement and their provisions for a referendum.
