Agus Salim

Agus Salim is a PhD candidate at the Asia Institute in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne. His research is on Islam and identity politics in Indonesia’s foreign policy.

Malcolm Turnbull’s replacement of Tony Abbott as prime minister of Australia did not make the front pages of any of Indonesia’s main papers last week. But as Agus Salim and Tim Mann write, it was clear that Indonesians will not be shedding any tears over Abbott’s downfall.
