On 22 August 2017, we will be holding a workshop on “Electoral Complaints and Accountability in Indonesia: The Challenge of Resolving Electoral Disputes” in Jakarta, Indonesia. There are multiple institutions that deal with complaints concerning electoral processes in Indonesia. This workshop will focus on two of these institutions – the Indonesian Election Supervision Board (Bawaslu) and the State Administrative Courts.
The workshop will be attended by election activists, officials from the Indonesian Electoral Commission, the Administrative Court, the Institute for the Study and Advocacy of Judicial Independence (LeIP), the Indonesian Centre for Law and Policy Studies (PSHK) and the Indonesian Election Supervision Board (Bawaslu).
This workshop is part of a broader collaborative project by Dr Fritz Siregar (Jentera/Bawaslu Commissioner) and Dr Melissa Crouch (UNSW). It is funded by the ANU Indonesia Research Grant scheme and the UNSW Indonesia Seed Funds.
