As a former student of ASOPA and a current Arts/Law undergraduate at James Cook University in Townsville, I can see how your idea could have merit.

Where would ANU's SSGM programme fit into your overall scheme of things? It would indeed be good if a foil to that Canberra-centric based organisation could be established.

I think there are two major problems that permeate the AusAID/DFAT based PNG programs:

1. The lack of reality, eg, training programs taking absolutely no cognisance of attrition rates; and

2. The anti-Kiap attitude which has permeated nearly all of the underlying programs and policy to date.
