Next Tuesday marks twelve months since President Joko Widodo’s inauguration. What have we learned about Jokowi as a leader during his first year as president, and how might his leadership continue to evolve over the remainder of his term?


In this Talking Indonesia podcast episode, I explore these issues with Wawan Mas’udi, PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne’s Asia Institute, writing on Jokowi’s early political career as mayor of Solo, and a lecturer in the department of politics and government at Gadjah Mada University.
