Our policy-oriented research focus on domestic political and social change. This includes macro political and social issues including the Indonesian political system, democratisation, constitutional and legal reform, decentralisation, gender-related problems, education, pluralism, and social problems.
We are also involved in public education and consulting to government agencies, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, academia and students through public lectures, seminars, training, and internships.
The department comprises thirteen full-time researchers with different backgrounds of education and specialisation. It also has a strong tradition of multidisciplinary research.
