In order to maximise the usefulness and potential uptake of this research, five overarching questions have been developed that are informed by priorities developed by Oxfam Australia in an ongoing research initiative funded by AusAid-DFAT, namely, ‘the preparation of a research report on services for the survivors of violence’. The four key questions are:
1. What is the scope and type of resettlement mechanisms that have been undertaken globally and in PNG with respect to survivors of sexual and gender-based violence? What resources, funding modalities, guidelines and criteria are attached to these that assist future policy and programming?
2. What are the linkages between formal and informal resettlement initiatives and how do they operate in practice?
3. What lessons and options are available that can inform initiatives to improve the quality and quantity of resettlement/repatriation services for survivors of violence at the national and sub-national levels?
4. What are the implications for business? Why and how should the private sector intervene?
