Chapter Summary

This chapter traces the roots of the conflict in the Moluccas to ascertain if the people of the South Moluccas have a right to self-determination and a right to wage a war of national liberation. It examines the conflict to ascertain if, and how, the international humanitarian law rules pertaining to wars of national liberation were applied to it. In order to fully understand the status of the Moluccan conflict, a brief discussion of this region is first undertaken. The issue of the right to self-determination of the people of the South Moluccas is discussed on two levels; first, the right to self-determination promised to them under the Linggadjati, Renville and Round Table Conference Agreements, and second their right to self-determination under international human rights law.

Keywords: international human rights law; Linggadjati Agreement; national liberation movements; self-determination; South Moluccas
