SKP stands for Sekretariat Keadilan dan Perdamaian or the Office of Justice and Peace, an integral part of the Catholic Diocese of Jayapura in Papua, Indonesia. This office was established by the Bishop of Jayapura, Most Rev. Dr Leo Laba Ladjar OFM on 1 July 1998. Since 15 August 2005, the Diocese of Jayapura and the Franciscans Friars in Papua agreed to establish the Board of Founders to assume all responsibility of this ministry. This office focuses on five priorities including advocacy on the situation on human rights in Papua, research and documentation, inter-faith dialogue, peace and reconciliation and ecological justice.

Exposing human rights violations is just one side of the mission SKP stands for; another is the effort to look for solutions. It is our deep conviction that exposing problems/violations without a commitment to look for a solution is an odd activity and risks to be very counterproductive.
