Talking Indonesia: resource nationalism

Author

Dave McRae is a Senior Research Fellow at the Asia Institute in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne. He is also an Associate at the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society.

What is resource nationalism, and how has it manifested in Indonesia? What is driving its emergence, and is Indonesia better or worse off as a result?

 

In this Talking Indonesia podcast episode, I explore these issues with Eve Warburton, PhD candidate in the Department of Political and Social Change at the Australian National University. Eve is writing her dissertation on natural resource policy in Indonesia.
