HIV/AIDS Papua Frontier towns.jpg
The seemingly uncontrolled creation of new regencies and districts (pemekaran) may benefit the local political elites by giving them access to huge development funds and more political power. The wellbeing of the majority of Papuans, however, are not taken into account. Pemekaran also plays into communitarian politics, dividing Papuans along clan and sub-clan lines. New regencies, furthermore, mean more government jobs, drawing educated Papuans away from involvement in civil society. New frontier towns are mushrooming everywhere, even in very remote, mountainous areas.
