Corruption in Papua New Guinea is a key constraint on development. Unravelling the nature of money politics is central to understanding and combatting corruption in the country. In this article we draw on news articles, reports and academic literature to show the nature of money politics and how it has spread. We argue that money politics has become prevalent during elections and institutionalised through recent decentralisation policy. We discuss the drivers of the spread of money politics in PNG and what these mean for policy makers and academics.
