The Indonesia at Melbourne blog is a platform for analysis, research and commentary on contemporary Indonesia by academics and postgraduate students affiliated with the University of Melbourne. Indonesia at Melbourne is a joint initiative of the Asia Institute in the Faculty of Arts, the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society (CILIS) in the Melbourne Law School, and the University of Melbourne’s Indonesia Forum.
The blog’s audience includes academics, journalists, businesspeople, development professionals and students with an interest in Indonesia. The emphasis of the blog is on politics but it also covers law, anthropology, culture, history, economics, architecture and public health, reflecting the diversity of expertise on contemporary Indonesia at this university.
External contributions to Indonesia at Melbourne are welcome at all times, although posts will be published at the discretion of the editor and advisory board. We seek articles between 800-1,000 words in length. We will only occasionally publish longer pieces. Please contact the editor with a proposal before submitting a longer article. Authors are responsible for guaranteeing that their work is original.
