Indonesia: Regional Conflicts and State Terror
Indonesia is a state torn by vicious and prolonged conflicts which, over recent years, have claimed tens of thousands of lives and left nearly a million people displaced. This Report gives the historical background to the current conflicts and ends with a look at the current reforms and a discussion of the many issues facing Indonesia today, offering a set of recommendations aimed at supporting peaceful solutions and respect for the human rights of all.–Please note that the terminology in the fields of minority rights and indigenous peoples’ rights has changed over time. MRG strives to reflect these changes as well as respect the right to self-identification on the part of minorities and indigenous peoples. At the same time, after over 50 years’ work, we know that our archive is of considerable interest to activists and researchers. Therefore, we make available as much of our back catalogue as possible, while being aware that the language used may not reflect current thinking on these issues.
