NEW WEBSITE: The Melanesian

The Melanesian is an editorial news site committed committed to a serious engagement
with issues affecting
peoples living in Melanesia. These issues may include, but are not
limited to: the environment(mining, petroleum,
logging, etc); health (HIV/AIDS, etc);
(corruption and the criminalisation of the state, NGOs and civil society
movements etc); rule of law and human
rights; and issues of sovereignty (Free West
Campaign, etc).

The site, co-founded by Andrew Moutu and Justin Shaffner, is newly created and still
undergoing construction. The
editorial board will expand to include a diversity of
expertise and experiences.
