ABSTRACT: 

The principle of Indonesian diplomacy is ‘One Million Friends without Enemies’ diplomacy. Agencies and organizations that carry out defense and development activities consistently avoid security issues (high politics) that are closely related to ideology and politics. Security focuses on defending the country against military threats that emanate from outside its territory. When the cold war ended, the concept of security was transformed. After the Cold War, there was a change in the balance of power and the opening of doors for international organizations other than the state to interact.

 The view of security shifted so that it demanded the democratization of the security sector and allowed changes to the security institutions to follow the principles of democracy. Traditional interpretations in terms of interaction between nations are no longer talking about security (security) related to military power (high politics) but security is also influenced by economic, social and cultural, technological progress (low politics). This study uses a qualitative method. Based on the results of research and discussion regarding the implementation of cultural diplomacy of West Papua and defense diplomacy policies at the Ministry of Defense of the Republic Indonesia, the following conclusions can be drawn: Researchers in analyzing used the concept of Edward III (1980).
