Project Description

Although it has been hosting tens of thousands asylum seekers and refugee over two decades, Indonesia lacks the legal framework for offering effective and durable protection for refugees. This research project aims at examining the extent to which the newly issued Presidential Regulation (Perpres) on foreign refugees (125/2016) changes the treatment of asylum seekers and refugees both on the national and local level. Moreover, given that the irregular movement of refugees and asylum seekers from Indonesia to Australia has caused tensions between the two countries, this research project is offering new insights on how the changed legal circumstances will impact on the Indonesia-Australia relationship.
