About us

The Australian National University’s Indonesia Project is a leading international centre of research and graduate training on the economy and society of Indonesia. Since its inception in 1965 by H.W. Arndt, the Indonesia Project has been at the forefront of Indonesian studies in Australia and internationally. The Indonesia Project is part of The Australian National University’s Arndt-Corden Department of Economics in the Crawford School of Public Policy in the College of Asia and the Pacific.

Through producing and disseminating high quality research, hosting public dialogues, institutional capacity building and institutional networking, the Indonesia Project aims to build stronger, research based public policies in Indonesia, particularly in the areas of economic development, social development, regional development, gender, human capital, poverty, governance, and environment. Furthermore, our activities aim to ensure the next generation of Indonesian researchers are nurtured and fostered.


The Centre is located in the Coombs Building situated on Fellows Road on the ANU campus.
