Tok Melanesia online forum "Violence begins at home'

Event Date: 
July 8, 2010 (All day) - July 31, 2010 (All day)

For several weeks, the website has featured material on domestic violence under the title 'Violence begins at home', accessible from the homepage.

To coincide with the published material (print article + podcast) and to complement the published journalism on its parent site, Telinga Media launched Tok Melanesia, an online forum to discuss wide-ranging issues in and about Melanesia.

Tok Melanesia invites contributions on the taboo topic of domestic violence. The forum is open to all but it also urges Melanesians – wherever they live – to exchange ideas on the problem in their homelands in a non-confrontational way. To make this easier, Telinga Media has prepared a special report on domestic violence in Papua New Guinea: ‘is domestic violence giving culture a bad name in PNG?’ it asks.

While the forum is predominantly in English, contributors will have the chance to share their views in any other lingua franca used across the Melanesian archipelago: any of the Melanesian pidgins, French, Fijian and Bahasa Indonesia.
