Due to their common heritage of legal systems and long standing mutual collaboration, the Netherlands and Indonesia have a unique opportunity to learn from each other’s developments and experiences, and contribute to strengthening the rule of law and its institutions in both countries.
Since 2015, IDLO has been administering the Indonesia-Netherlands Rule of Law Fund of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Jakarta, with the aim to support the development of effective, accountable and inclusive justice sector institutions, and ensure equal access to justice in Indonesia.
Now, key partners and stakeholders are convening for the Indonesia–Netherlands Rule of Law and Security Update 2018 to highlight achievements in the longstanding bilateral cooperation in the fields of rule of law and security and identify how this relationship can be further strengthened. The meeting will consider evolving Indonesian and Dutch interests and policy priorities, within the overall frame of the Sustainable Development Goals.
On January 17, a seminar will take place at the Erasmus Huis where high-level officials from both countries will speak on different aspects of rule of law and security. On January 18, twelve expert panels will discuss a variety of topics from ensuring equal access to justice, legal aid, natural resources management, cybercrime and asset recovery to investment challenges at Atma Jaya University.
This two-day meeting is organized by a broad constituency of people and agencies, including the Working Group Indonesia: Justice & Development of the Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law (KPSRL), Kemitraan, Atma Jaya University, Nuffic Neso and IDLO.
