In his presentation Cyprianus explores the way in which self-determination is framed in discourse, actions and proposals of contemporary social movements in Papua (1998-2010). By looking at the historical emergence of the movement, he attempts to understand the (re)presentation of modern Papuans. In addition, Cypri examines how these movements propose solutions in regard to human rights and development agenda. The research seeks to connect concepts of development, human rights and social justice with self-determination within an analysis of social movements in Papua, Indonesia.
Cypri reveals how in concrete situations of development hazards, rights violations leading to social injustice, change or social transformation, are imagined and practiced, through the discursive, non-violent practices of social movements. Hence, the study provides social movements‘ alternative ways of imagining the past, present and future.
