This special Centre of Gravity paper features three contributions on Indonesia and its changing relationship with Australia and the world. Evelyn Goh, Greg Fealy and Ristian Atriandi Supriyanto examine the changes in Indonesian foreign policy under President Joko Widodo and pressing challenges such as terrorism and maritime security cooperation.
Evelyn Goh, Shedden Professor of Strategic Policy Studies examines the changes in Indonesian foreign policy under President Joko Widodo. She also offers important policy recommendations for Australia that can help work with the new president's maritime focus and deepen US-Indonesia links. Professor Greg Fealy meanwhile highlights a potential relationship destabiliser on the horizon: the rise of Islamic State fighters in Indonesia. He explores how Indonesian politics and society has responded to IS' rise and looks at the limited opportunities for cooperation between Australia and Indonesia. Finally, Ristian Atriandi Supriyanto, a PhD scholar at SDSC, working under Evelyn Goh's supervision examines Indonesia's maritime security focus and offers a bold proposal for improving regional security and helping to ground the bilateral relationship.
