The first and determining step towards a peaceful settlement in West Papua, through the process of Restorative Justice, is that the Indigenous Papuans and Indonesian government must both commit themselves to being constructive.

Second, the stakeholders of the West Papua conflict are the Papuans as victims, the Indonesian government and military as offenders, and various institutions of civil society, amongst them being church, indigenous peoples councils, NGOs both local and international. Each of them has a significant role in the process of restoration through Restorative Justice.
