Welcome to the West Papuan Human Rights Center (WPHRC) website. The WPHRC was established in 2019, by a group of American-Melanesia academics and human rights activists in Washington, DC, and Virginia to support the efforts of the West Papuan Mission to the US and the United Nations and to monitor the ongoing crisis in West Papua.
The center aims to raise awareness and educate the United States on the West Papuan inalienable rights in regard to self-determination and full independence with international law and the United Nations resolutions. In concert, the center campaigns for protecting human rights and advocates for the rule of law in accordance with international standards.
