Large scale internal migration is comparatively recent in Papua New Guinea and the proportion of the population living in towns is small. Already, however, migration and urbanisation pose serious problems for social and economic policy makers. This book brings together a number of important papers on internal migration in Papua New Guinea. The fifteen contributions, some reprints of major articles and others written especially for this volume, represent a significant part of the data at present available. The introduction surveys the Papua New Guinea literature on the subject and relates it to overseas studies. Not only will this collection be valuable to all concerned with the policy implications of internal migration and urbanisation in Papua New Guinea; it will be essential reading for anthropologists, demographers, economists and geographers interested in migration in developing countries.
