Book Launch: The Politics of Court Reform


On Monday 18 November, the UNSW Bookroom will host a book launch of "The Politics of Court Reform: Judicial Change and Legal Culture in Indonesia" (CUP 2019)
Chair: Jacqueline Vel, with authors Melissa Crouch, Theunis Roux, Indri Saptaningrun, Herlambang Perdana and Fritz Siregar
Indonesia is the world's third largest democracy and its courts are an important part of its democratic system of governance. Since the transition from authoritarian rule in 1998, a range of new specialised courts have been established from the Commercial Courts to the Constitutional Court and the Fisheries Court. In addition, constitutional and legal changes have affirmed the principle of judicial independence and accountability. The growth of Indonesia's economy means that the courts are facing greater demands to resolve an increasing number of disputes. This event will launch the volume, which offers an analysis of the politics of court reform through a review of judicial change and legal culture in Indonesia. A key concern is whether the reforms that have taken place have addressed the issues of the decline in professionalism and increase in corruption. At the book launch, several of the contributors to the book will offer their perspective on the politics of court reform in Indonesia over the past 20 years.
