goodmorningpapua.com – Seeing Papua with the heart and point of view of Papua. That perspective is what Bobby Anderson wants to present in his writings in this book. Talking about Papua is talking about realizing justice and prosperity to Papuan people and nature. The land of Papua is a mystery and sometimes difficult to penetrate.
In that situation, Bobby worked for five years in Papau. He went around many villages and interacted directly with people who had not been touched by health and education services at all.
Through these articles that have been published in various journals and media, Bobby would like to emphasize that to this day, no significant changes have been seen in the daily lives of Papuans. Bobby Anderson is an author of PapuaÕs Insecurity: State Failure in the Indonesian PeripheryÓ (East-West Center Policy Studies 73, 2015).
He has worked in Indonesia (Papua) from 2010 to 2015; previously in Aceh, Central Sulawesi and Maluku; Also Myanmar, Timor-Leste, Afghanistan, and former Yugoslavia. Bobby accomplished the Peace Studies at the University of Bradford (UK) and is also an alumnus of the National University of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.
An expert in political economy and vulnerability, conflict and violence, Bobby Anderson has experience in managing stabilization programs, community-based development, ex-combatants reintegration, livelihoods and frontline service delivery.
