Abstract

tion of close ties to churches and to traditional custom. Repeated efforts (notably by the Polynesian party in the independence front) to reconcile Palika and the UC within the flnks have resulted only in a vague goal of electing a new coalition president (absent since 2001) sometime next year (NC, 6 Dec 2010). In the meantime, local nation-builders on various sides are beginning to study the forms of self-government that other former colonies in Oceania have adopted, including free association (NC, 21 Oct 2010). Double legitimacy plus common destiny may yet produce dignity for all. 483 Papua During the year 2010, the provinces of Papua and West Papua routinely witnessed political events like those of the encounters between Indonesian miliarmed group tpn/opm occurred more frequently than in 2009. As in 2005, several demonstrations over the people's desire to hand back the Special Autonomy Law of 2001 (popularly called Otsus) to the national government involved not only civil society groups but also state institutions such as the Papua People's Assembly (mrp). In addition to political pressure from within Papua, growing international pressure was noteworthy, especially david chappell References 1988.
