In January 2002, at the invitation of the British High Commissioner, the ICPS Projects Director spent two weeks working with the Correctional Service of Papua New Guinea. He met with prison officials, NGO’­s, and visited the training school and several prisons, before leading a three day workshop on human rights in prisons with a range of staff working in the prisons in Port Moresby and in the training school. Throughout the visit he linked in with the staff of the Australian Aid Agency, AusAid, which has a permanent project within the Corrections Service of Papua New Guinea, working on a number of issues.
