Is Papua autonomy a myth?

Is Papua autonomy a myth?


The Jakarta Post, August 21, 2003

Neles Tebay, Pontifical, University of Urbaniana, Rome

The province of Papua has just conducted its evaluation after the first year’s implementation of the special autonomy law in Jayapura, on July 28-29. Attended by all the regents, tribal leaders, religious leaders and scholars, the evaluation conveyed two messages.

Conference “Autonomy for Papua – Opportunity or Illusion?”, 04-05. June 2003

With its more than 17,000 islands stretching over some 5,000 kilometres, the Republic of Indonesia comprises a multitude of socially and culturally diverse regions with different historical experiences. Preserving Indonesia as a unitary state is a difficult and permanent task in nation-building.

Programs to Improve the Quality of Education and Health in Papua under the Special Autonomy


Conference “Autonomy for Papua – Opportunity or Illusion?”, 04-05 June 2003

by Agustina Iwanggin Tanamal

Introduction

The development process in Papua from one political regime to another has evolved very slowly which basically made Papua the most abandoned province in Indonesia. The Papuans live in various ecosystems, spread from the highlands to the lowlands, including the swamps and estuaries areas, each with different social system. These diversities require a special development policy or program. In general, barriers to the involvement of ... read more

Social and economic changes in Papua since the Law on Special Autonomy came into effect


Conference “Autonomy for Papua – Opportunity or Illusion?”, 04-05.06.2003

Conference “Autonomy for Papua – Opportunity or Illusion?”, 04-05.06.2003

by John Rumbiak

In response to Papuans’ increasingly visible and vocal demands for independence in the post-Suharto period, there have been a series of initiatives aimed at resolving the four-decades-old conflict in Papua peacefully. The first of these efforts was the 1999 National Dialogue on Irian Jaya, a process of dialogue with Terms of Reference signed by Indonesia’s State Secretary and Papuan representatives. Due to a lack of political will on ... read more
