Indonesia Mini-Update 2018: Recent Political and Economic Developments
in Indonesia

On 14 and 15 September of this year, the Australian National
University’s Indonesia Project held its annual Indonesia Update
conference in Canberra. Bringing together prominent Indonesia scholars
every year since 1983 to discuss recent political, economic and social
developments in Indonesia, the event is usually attended by around 400
people. Following the main event in Canberra, a smaller version of the
conference, or “Mini-Update”, is subsequently held in other cities.
