Governing the Ungovernable: dealing with the rise of informal security in Indonesia

By R. Robison, I. Wilson and A. Meliala

Abstract

In a recent survey conducted by the respected Indonesian Journal, Tempo, Indonesian respondents cited uncertainties regarding security in everyday life as their major concern, ahead of worries about terrorism. An important part of this concern is the growing influence of infoecurity groups (ISGs) and various forms of militia operating at the margins of rule of law. While such organisations had been an important part of the former Soeharto regime, one key question is how they have survived and flourished despite the ending of authoritarian rule and the rise of democracy. This policy brief will examine the various policy and governance programmes introduced to deal with the issue and assess their relative effectiveness. It will provide recommendations for future policy design
