Photographs are now available from the October 22, 2014 event “Indonesia’s Jokowi Administration: Implications for the U.S. and Beyond.” The event featured Marcus Mietzner, Associate Professor at College of the Asia Pacific at Australian National University, and was moderated by Ann Marie Murphy, Senior Research Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.
Over the past two years, Professor Mietzner traveled in Indonesia, where he researched political parties. More information can be found in his book, Money, Power, and Ideology: Political Parties in Post-Authoritarian Indonesia.
During the event, Professor Mietzner presented the biography of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who was the President of Indonesia between 2004 and 2014. Marcus discussed the fact that inequality in Indonesia is increasing and perhaps is now at its highest point.
The event was co-sponsored by the Southeast Asian Student Initiative (SEASI).
