About this Unit
This unit investigates the far-reaching political and social changes underway in Indonesia, Australia's closest and most important Asian neighbour. It studies in depth the turbulent period since the 1998 overthrow of Soeharto, paying particular attention to the dramatic struggle for political reform against efforts to preserve much of the status quo. The unit examines the far-reaching constitutional reforms implemented since 2000 and the accompanying new political structure that is emerging. Indonesia's status as an emerging democracy is a particular focus of the unit against the backdrop of challenges such as economic crisis, Islamist terror, separatist pressures, and endemic corruption.
