Inside Indonesia was set up in Melbourne by the Indonesian Resources and Information Program (IRIP) in 1983. This was a time when the mainstream media in Australia included very little information about Indonesia. The diverse group of academics and activists involved in the establishment of Inside Indonesia wanted to provide an antidote to that situation. In particular, they wanted to provide information about the growing numbers of people and organisations in Indonesia who were involved in attempts to bring about social and political change amidst the very repressive conditions at that time under the Suharto regime.
