About us

The ANU Indonesia Project – Contributing to public policy reform in Indonesia since 1965 through leading research, capacity building and networking.

We are a leading centre for research, policy development and graduate training in the Australia-Indonesia region. Since 1965 we have produced and disseminated high quality research on the economy and society of Indonesia. Across the region our research is recognized for its ongoing role in informing Indonesian economic and social policy development. Our key areas of research include trade and economic development; agriculture, resources and the environment; governance; social policy and human capital; and gender.

Based in Indonesia and Australia, our work also makes a critical contribution to building the next generation of Indonesianists. Through our graduate education and capacity building activities we have trained some of Indonesia’s leading policy makers including Ministers and senior policy advisers. Our alumni include former Minister of Trade, Dr Mari Pangestu and former Minister of Finance, Dr M Chatib Basri.

Over five decades we have built one of the largest networks of Indonesianists in the world and developed strong people-to-people links between Australia and Indonesia. Our networks include academics, policy experts and decision makers from both Australia and Indonesia. We leverage our networks and share our knowledge and policy expertise to build capacity and increase awareness in the region.

Our research and networks have helped promote economic development and improve citizen welfare in Indonesia since 1965.
