Jokowi in Papua: Powerless or duplicitous?
This In Brief considers Indonesian President Joko Widodo's policy actions in Papua. It demonstrates that over the past few months of the new presidency, the rhetoric on Papua has not matched the reality of policy changes and political moves taking place. It concludes that whether the president is deliberately misleading Papuans or powerless to implement progressive changes, he is contributing to tensions amid a military build-up that could spell disaster.
