Three Fundamental Problems in West Papua

There are three fundamental problems that should be addressed peacefully in West Papua: crimes against humanity, the failure of New Order’s (Suharto regime) socio-economic and cultural development, and the reconciliation of Papua as land of peace. Democratisation in Indonesia has brought a very successful change in Papua. The majority of Papuan are now supporting the development program implemented under the special autonomy with the support of international community. Papuans are no longer facing marginalisation in their own land. Some would say it is time  for a real change.

Addressing these problems is an internal matter for Indonesia’s central government and local government of Papua and West Papua provinces. However, the international community through any international organization such as the UN , NGOs and civil society movements could take part in helping the development in Papua.

  2. Papua in the past is different from now. Don’t be hesitate to government of Indonesia in order to implement people welfare in Papua. Only the pessimist people toward Papua’s future by raising this issue including crimes against humanity, the failure of New Order’s (Suharto regime) socio-economic and cultural development, and the reconciliation of Papua as land of peace. People of Papua should keep in peaceful situation and not easily provoked by any interest parties to make Papua worst. We love living in peace and safe life,right?
