Indonesia’s criminal law system faces major challenges. Despite the country’s transition to democracy, both the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code are badly out of date, and the regulatory, police, judicial and corrections systems all need urgent reform.

This webinar provides an assessment of the state of criminal law, law enforcement and penal policy in Indonesia. Covering a wide range of areas of criminal law, expert speakers (including Professor Topo Santoso, University of Indonesia) will discuss recent efforts at reform and their prospects for success.

At the workshop, Professor Todung Mulya Lubis will launch Crime and Punishment in Indonesia (Editors: Tim Lindsey, Helen Pausacker, Routledge 2021). Speakers at the event contributed chapters to this new book.
