The direction of the research:
Participants should first look at the "Genocide in West Papua?" report from the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney, which outlines the most important aspects of the conflict.
We would like participants to come to an understanding of the issues in Irian Jaya:
- A general look at how conflict in the area has been progressing, focusing preferably within the last 10-15 years.
- Political involvement and military actions on part of the Indonesian government

I submitted an inquiry at Radical Reference and they have provided some initial research and sources to work off of. Check it out @:
These are some starts from which you may begin your research:
We have opened up www.headsonfire.org/community which is now available for you to post any research you have been working to find up to this point.
We will be reviewing articles and documents as they come in and give feedback where it is appropriate. We are hoping that participants collaborate in this effort and discuss with each other the findings that are posted. It is important to establish this communication in order to acquire the best possible results.
