    Debates on linkages between democracy and welfare remain fascinating issues in contemporary democracy studies, especially in Indonesia. Howeuer, mainstream studies on such issues were influenced, foremost, by political economy approaches and classic liberalism. Thus, mainstream studies pay less attentions on decontruct both the idea of democrary and welfare and tend to essensialize democracy and welfare. lt also insulate politics from conflict and social antagonisms. Rather than analysing pattern of linkages betwoeen welfare and democracy, this study inquire about \u27welfare\u27 itself –as common goods– is empty/floating signifier and then put emphasis on welfare –as articulatory social practices and discursiae reality– always been produced, presented and represented in and through political process or battle for hegemony. Moreover, whilst this study underline the primacy of political and discursive social practices, it strongly differ from model of deliberative democracy (liberal pluralist) since it re-emphasize agonistic model of democracy, that was introduced by post-marxist or radical pluralist thinkers. Last of all, agonistic model of democracy deem conflict, undecidability and social antagonism as virtue of democracy and main of political life

    Since the resignation of President Suharto in 1998, Indonesia has undergone a massive process of decentralisation and democratisation. Political power no longer concentrates at the national level, but is decentralised in local domains. Furthermore, in the cases of Aceh and Papua, the central government has had to give relatively broader autonomy in those regions in comparison with other regions of Indonesia

    Welfare Politics in Contemporary Indonesia; Examining Welfare Vision of Law 11/2009

    Full text link
    This article presents a picture of contemporary welfare politics in Indonesia. Adopted in the light of broken welfare-oriented programes initiated by national and local administrations, it was hoped that Law 11/2009 would provide a clearer direction for the development of welfare systems in Indonesia. However, analysis of the formulation and content of the law, together with interviews and session notes indicate that such expectations are unlikely to be fulfilled. The legislation process in parliament (DPR) lacked any ideological or substantive debate, while the content fails to present a clear vision of welfare, except as a residual-like model and with characteristics of a benevolent state. This social welfare law has thoroughly failed to act as a blueprint for the Indonesian welfare ideal

    Social Welfare Politics in Contemporary Indonesia: Understanding the Social Welfare System Vision in Act 11 of 2009

    This study attempts to understand how the social welfare politics developed in the contemporary Indonesian politics work by focusing on the policy making process of Act 11 of 2009 on social welfare. The research focuses on trying to understand the vision, ideological thinking, and welfare scheme model envisioned by the formulators of the policy when designing social welfare system in Indonesia. By employing analyses on three important dimensions of policy which are context, substance, and process of policy this study finds that social welfare policy design in Indonesia is built in particular, not universal. Social welfare scheme is a response of the state to discipline social problems more than an expression of state responsibility towards the fulfillment of citizens' basic rights in the citizenship framework. Aside from that, tendencies of being output oriented and strong bureaucratization arise in its implementation design. There is no clarity of the ideological choice and distinction in the existing social welfare scheme. The matter is confirmed when the formulation process of Act 11 of 2009 shows that the different political parties with different ideological background, and different constituent basis did not have different perspectives and ideological contestations. Ideological debates were absent

    Securing the Pace and the Direction of Indonesian Democratization

    This concise book lays down a framework to seek alternative models of democracy, which seemingly satisfies two contradicting requirements. They are internationally justifiable but can easily be implemented in particular context, that is Indonesia. Ensuring ease in implementing the model is important for Indonesia, given the difficulty of the country to sustain in the country's democratization. This book has no intention to obstruct the possibility to adopt a particular idea of democracy, but it believes that more proper consideration on the contextual aspect is just as crucial as the values of democracy themselves, no matter how we define them. We believe that democratization is basically a cultural transformation process from a less democratic culture, towards a more democratic one as the public defines it

    When global norms meet local politics : localising transparency in extractive industries governance

    Get PDF
    Processes of norm localisation play a crucial role in shaping the extent to which global governance norms are institutionalised at national and sub‐national levels. This article explores the politics of norm localisation through an empirical investigation of how global norms of “transparency” were localised in sub‐national processes of extractive industry governance in Bojonegoro, Indonesia. Previous theories of localisation have emphasised “constructivist” dynamics through which patterns of norm localisation are shaped decisively by efforts to build normative or cognitive congruence with local ideas and identities. In contrast, the mix of a newly democratised environment, the persistent power of corporatist elite networks and a populist style of local politics prevailing in Bojonegoro have diminished the significance of such constructivist dynamics as a basis for explaining varied patterns of norm localisation. Instead, patterns of norm localisation have depended crucially on the capacity of local political leaders to harness global governance norms instrumentally as a basis for consolidating and strengthening their own local power base. These findings have important implications for both theoretical and practical understandings of how global norm localisation processes vary in response to the contrasting political contexts in which global governance norms targeting the extractive sector are implemented
