Information War in Papua in Order to Support Nirmilitary Defense
The development of information and communication technology in the form of the internet has brought major changes to human life, including in communicating and disseminating information. Internet technology has been used by Papuan armed criminal groups as a means of information warfare by framing the Papuan issue and spreading it through online media and social media to discredit the Indonesian government. The spread of propaganda on the Papua issue through the internet is a non-military threat to national defense that can disrupt national stability and the integrity of the Indonesian state. This study aims to analyze the framing of information on the issue of Papuan independence in social media and online media and the role of the government in dealing with it. The method used in this research is qualitative which focuses on the analysis of the framing of the Papua issue on Twitter social media. The results of the study show that the Papua issue is used as propaganda with an agenda setting, namely Papuan independence.
