Genocide and Demographic change in Papua: A response to Jim Elmsie and Stuart Upton
Chauvel, Richard (2009) Genocide and Demographic change in Papua: A response to Jim Elmsie and Stuart Upton. Inside Indonesia (97 ). ISSN 1441-1954Full text for this resource is not available from the Institutional Repository.
Richard Chauvel responds to articles by Jim Elmslie and Stuart Upton. He states that one of the useful contributions that both articles make is that they place Papua in a broader regional context. In comparing the markedly different rates of population growth in Indonesian Papua and Papua New Guinea, Jim Elmslie asserts that the two are ‘comparable Melanesian societies’. Looking west to the rest of the archipelago, Stuart Upton argues that population change in Papua looks like ‘the normal pattern of inter-island migration rather than genocide’. Chauvel considers these two views.
