In 2023, seventy-five years after Renville and shortly after Indonesia convenes the G20, the time is ripe to re-evaluate Indonesia’s position in international relations. How has Indonesia’s position in international relations evolved over time? What are the domestic drivers of Indonesia’s current foreign policy? Has Indonesia been underperforming on the international stage, as the fourth-most-populous country on earth and the country with the largest Muslim population?
This hybrid conference, co-convened by the University of North Carolina and Universitas Pelita Harapan, will examine Indonesia in international relations with both historical and contemporary perspectives.
