The International Academics for West Papua (IAWP) network will have its launch in the Pacific region at the University of Sydney on September 1. IAWP will be launched in Australia at the conference, ‘Beyond the Pacific: West Papua on the World Stage’, hosted by the West Papua Project at the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University.
We are hoping to have our launch in Europe in the United Kingdom in October.
International Academics for West Papua is a network that was started in 2016 by a group of academics concerned about the ongoing human rights abuses in West Papua. We welcome academics from all countries and all disciplines. Our main statement of belief is contained within our first major open letter to the Indonesian government and governments of the world, still open to signatures. To view the letter, see here, and to sign, see here.
