Papua Land of Peace

'Papua, Land of Peace' aims to establish a culture of peace. It builds communication ties between the different peoples and religions within Papua and between Papuans and the Indonesian Government. It intends to offer a free and just space, an arena for an open-ended discussion, and a frame for dialogue acceptable to all parties. 'Papua, Landof Peace' recognizes Papua's memoria passionis: the remembrance of a history full of violence, neglect and broken promises against the Papuans. It believes that this history needs healing and recognition.

'Papua, Land of Peace' is established by leaders of the Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist Communities in Papua. In promoting Papua as a land of peace, religious leaders cooperate with human rights organisations, NGOs, journalists and academics.
