Indonesia Mini-Update 2018: Recent Political and Economic Developments in Indonesia
On 14 and 15 September of this year, the Australian National University’s Indonesia Project held its annual Indonesia Update conference in Canberra. Bringing together prominent Indonesia scholars every year since 1983 to discuss recent political, economic and social developments in Indonesia, the event is usually attended by around 400 people. Following the main event in Canberra, a smaller version of the conference, or “Mini-Update”, is subsequently held in other cities.
Against this background, the Indonesia Project at the Australian National University and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Kyoto University are pleased to organise the first Mini-Update to be held in Kyoto, at which two of the Update conference papers will be presented, with discussants from Kyoto University.
