The Radicalisation of Indonesian Women Workers in Hong Kong

The latest report from the Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), looks at how a tiny cell of some 50 extremist domestic workers has developed within the 153,000-strong Indonesian community in Hong Kong.

“Some of these women were drawn in by jihadi boyfriends they met online,” says Nava Nuraniyah, IPAC analyst. “But some joined ISIS as a path to empowerment.”

The Re-emergence of Jemaah Islamiyah, the latest report from the Jakarta-based Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), examines the revival of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), the terrorist organisation forever associated with the 2002 Bali bombings. JI, the report argues, remains a threat, not because it is likely to resume a campaign of violence but because it could give rise to a more militant splinter. 

Final Report of the International People's Tribunal on 1965 Killings in Indonesia

The International People’s Tribunal on the 1965 Crimes Against Humanity (IPT 1965) has concluded  that the Indonesian government had committed acts of genocide, as stipulated in the 1948 International Genocide Convention, during the 1965 communist purge, which reportedly led to the death approximately 500,000 people. The IPT is not legally binding, but the  judges are sending their report to the UN with an eye on further action being taken.

The Economic Origins of Indonesia's Secessionist Conflicts

Abstract
This article details the argument for the economic origins of the secessionist challenge posed by Indonesia's four resource-rich regions. The desire of rich regions to retain their own wealth conflicts with the national goal of sharing social welfare for equitable development across the country. The grievances of relative deprivation and aspiration to inequality were related to the distribution of resource rent by the autocratic regime of Suharto. Democratic transition opened up political space in which the resource-rich regions addressed their grievances, pushing the country to the edge of disintegration. The main policy response to the problem was decentralisation as part of the overall democratisation process. The policy has been successful so far in achieving its political objective; however, in the long run, people of the rich regions may be disillusioned because there is a risk that the supposed economic benefits of decentralisation may not materialise.
