The Indonesia at Melbourne blog was launched in June 2015 to present analysis, research and commentary on contemporary Indonesia from academics and postgraduate students affiliated with the University of Melbourne. It aims to stimulate debate and provide a forum for exchange of information and opinion on current events in Indonesia.

The emphasis is on politics but the blog also covers law, anthropology, culture, history, economics, architecture and public health, reflecting the diversity of expertise on contemporary Indonesia at the university.

Indonesia at Melbourne is a joint initiative of the Asia Institute in the Faculty of Arts, the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society (CILIS) in the Melbourne Law School, and the University of Melbourne’s Indonesia Forum (link is external). It is also generously supported by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), Professor Simon Evans.

Indonesia at Melbourne is edited by Tim Mann. Professor Tim Lindsey, Director of CILIS, and Dr Dave McRae, from The Asia Institute, serve on the blog’s advisory board.

The blog also hosts guest contributions from University of Melbourne alumni and external experts in Australia and Indonesia. Please contact us (link sends e-mail) if you are interested in contributing to the site.
