Sea Control 46 (Asia Pacific) – Indonesia Primer

seacontrol2This week, Sea Control Asia Pacific brings you a primer on Indonesia: what do its recent elections mean for its global role? The largest state in Southeast Asia as well as a stable, Muslim majority democracy, Indonesia is always said to have ‘great potential’ both as a regional power and global player. With a newly elected president, could Indonesia do more in international affairs? To answer that question, Natalie Sambhi, of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, interviews Dr Peter McCawley, an expert in Indonesian economics, and Dr Ross Tapsell, an expert in media and Indonesia studies, both from the Australian National University. They discuss Indonesia’s national priorities, a future foreign policy, the economy and the state of democratic politics.
