Project Description

This project examines how domestic politics shapes Indonesia's implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) on Business and Human Rights. Specifically, the project will analyse how the Indonesian state responds to different actors in civil society promoting the implementation of policies governing human rights abuses in key economic sectors, and how this shapes their effectiveness. The expected outcomes of this project include an analysis of the Indonesian case, a conceptual framework for explaining state responses to the UNGPs, policy-related advice for promoting the UNGPs, and enhanced understanding of solutions to global governance implementation gaps. The expected benefits include enhanced capacity in Australia and elsewhere to address corporate abuses of human rights.
