Indonesian Reformasi as Reflected in Law
When in May 1998 General Suharto eventually resigned, hopes were high that Indonesia would head towards a more democratic future. Have these hopes materialized in any way? This book provides an analysis of change and continuity as manifest in key legislation on the political system and human rights. Constitutional Amendments and new laws - amongst others on political parties, elections, the press, labour unions, human rights and human rights courts - are assessed against Suharto-era legislation as well as against international standards as laid down in international human rights instruments.
