The 2019 Elections and the Future of Indonesian Democracy

Please join us for a public panel on the 2019 Indonesian presidential and legislative elections and their implications for electoral accountability and democratic quality in Indonesia.

The event brings together leading scholars and politicians from Indonesia and Australia to discuss this year’s electoral campaign, the sources of power for contestants for public office, the functioning of Indonesia’s electoral institutions and political system, as well as the prospects for the observance of rights under a second term Jokowi administration.

The public panel will be followed by an all-day workshop presented by the University of Melbourne’s Asia Institute with the sponsorship of the Indonesian Democracy Hallmark Research Initiative. Dr Dave McRae (Asia Institute, IDeHaRI Deputy Chair) is the workshop convenor.
