Seminar on Indonesian politics – 'Elektabilitas'
Politics and the 2017 Local Elections: Quo vadis Indonesia's Party System?
Speaker: Dr Max Lane. This presentation will review the recent elections
for governors, district heads and mayors, looking in particular at the
relationship between parties and their most prominent candidates, usually
chosen for "electability" above all else. The recent gubernatorial election
in Jakarta will be a major focus of the presentation, along with references
to other areas. What are the implications for the role of ideology and
policy, especially in terms of national political economy, with the steadily
increasing strength of "elektabilitas" politics? Friday
March 24, 3-4.30pm. ISEAS Seminar Rm 2.

Papua Petition Campaign – As concerned
citizens from around the world, we call on you to urgently address the
human rights situation in West Papua and to review the UN's involvement
in the administration of West Papua that led to its unlawful annexation
by Indonesia – and the human rights abuse that continues today. We call
upon you to: appoint a Special Representative to investigate the human
rights situation in West Papua; put West Papua back on the Decolonisation
Committee agenda and ensure their right to self-determination – denied
to them in 1969 – is respected by holding an Internationally Supervised
Vote (in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolutions 1514 and 1541
(XV)). Organised by the Free West
Papua Campaign. Click
