The purpose of this article is to analyze conflict resolution in Papua in order to promote the government's sustainable development objectives. One of the roots of the conflict in Papua is the dissatisfaction amongst the people of Papua due to the economic and social inequality as well as cultural disharmony which have resulted from uneven development in the region. The dissatisfaction can only then be resolved through development as to where the people of Papua will acquire justice and prosperity. Regardless, it is impossible to execute a sustainable development program in the absence of political stability and security. Therefore, it is imperative to reorient the resolution of conflicts in Papua through diplomacy, both internationally and domestically to gain a mutual ground and agreement between the conflicting parties in order to create political stability and security.
