Focus on West Papua

Dawn Gibson
Monday, March 03, 2014

PUBLIC lectures will be held this week at USP, FNU and the University of Fiji concerning the reforms and social developments taking place in West Papua.

The lectures, which are free to all members of the public, will contain discussions aimed at raising awareness and creating debate about West Papuan provinces within militia-run Indonesia.

The lectures will include a panel made up of two former West Papuan activists, senior advisers at the Co-ordinating Ministry for Legal, Political and Security Affairs, a first Vice-Chancellor of Representatives of the Papuan People's Assembly and the chancellor of the state University of Papua, an Information Ministry statement read.

"The visit of this delegation builds on the current momentum to strengthen the relationship between the MSG member countries and the Republic of Indonesia," the statement confirmed. "This visit to Fiji is in line with the outcomes of the recent visit by MSG Foreign Ministers to Indonesia in January of this year."
