This research study has sought the contextual understanding of young adults’ realities and the perpetual use of violence within heterosexual intimate partner relationships in Hanuabada village, Papua New Guinea through an interactive transformative approach. Peer interviewers guided the researcher’s tasks and conducted semi-structured interviews utilizing a photo voice methodology to investigate their own and their peer’s life worlds. Primary data constituted the foundation for a focus group discussion and thus a first analysis was conducted in collaboration with peer interviewers. Thereafter, findings were further analyzed utilizing the framework of ‘the social structure of a relationship’ as a theoretical lens. Findings demonstrate that young adults’ realities and daily lives are highly influence by the distinct gender roles defined by the community. They have a major impact on the way they view their world, what they do and what decisions they make. Furthermore, key structural conditions given by the theoretical framework all showed to be relevant for the perpetual use of violence within intimate partner relationships in Hanuabada. (Less)
