Abstract

the contemporary pacific · fall 2002 trict courts--have had great difficulty resolving these claims. Compensation demands are often so extravagant as to be beyond the ability (or inclination) of the responsible parties to pay. Difficult cases that a Compensation Panel could not satisfactorily resolve would likely be appealed, resulting in further delays. Also, the Compensation Settlements Administration Board could be a problem. Accusations of corruption and siphoning of funds plague many institutions in Papua New Guinea, and it is hard to imagine that an organization that handles large trust funds, especially one that finances itself, would be exempt. which would "supervise payments of compensation to the correct beneficiaries, handle complaints about failures to implement orders or agreements, and supervise the administration of trust funds and provide co-trustees" (xxxii). The report envisions the panel and the board to be funded through charges levied on settlements and income from the administration of trust funds. Trust funds would be established whenever compensation payments are large, or involve a class of claimants like a tribal group or future beneficiaries. What is included under the rubric of "compensation" in this volume seems to be much narrower than what anthropologists understand as "kompensesen" in
