Sorcery and Witchcraft in Papua New Guinea: Problems in Definition

Eves, Richard


In this In Brief, Associate Professor Richard Eves looks at the lack of definitional clarity that exists around the terms sorcery and witchcraft in the Papua New Guinea context. He notes that the blurring of these two terms occurs not only in popular media but that it is also "widely reproduced by NGOs, donor organisations, and government institutions”.
