Bivitri Susanti

Bivitri Susanti is a lecturer at the Jentera School of Law and a researcher with the Indonesian Center for Law and Policy Studies (PSHK).

For more than a year, the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) has been quietly working on plans to amend the 1945 Constitution for a fifth time, and reinstate the State Policy Guidelines (GBHN). Bivitri Susanti writes that although the term “state policy guidelines” might sound rather innocuous, the return of the GBHN could have grave political consequences.
