Blundering in?
The Australia-Indonesia Security Treaty and the Humanitarian Crisis in West Papua
By Jim Elmslie with Peter King and Jake Lynch

The conflict in West Papua has given rise to an ongoing humanitarian emergency.
At the same time, the human rights outlook for the West Papuan people is worsening.
Political prospects are clouded, with the Special Autonomy package for West Papua now in ruins.
The Security Treaty Australia has signed - but not ratified - with the Indonesian government will make this conflict worse.
It amounts to a decision to take sides with the corrupt Indonesian military against the West Papuan people.
It threatens human rights, not only in West Papua but also in Australia itself.
It must be re-thought and re-written, or rejected.
