Papuan unification

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Political divisions of New Guinea; Western New Guinea in the west and Papua New Guinea in the east

The unification (or re-unification) of Papua New Guinea (or East Papua), an independent state, and West Papua (or Western New Guinea), a territory of Indonesia, both parts of the New Guinea island, has been raised since the second half of the 20th century.[1]

Generally, proposals regarding federation with Papua New Guinea are a minority view in the Free Papua Movement. Arguments for federation generally focus around shared cultural identity between the two halves of the island.[2]


The gradual unification of the two halves of the island was official Australian government policy for a short period of time in the 1960’s, before Indonesia’s annexation of West Papua.[1]
