Inauguration Day: Challenges ahead for Indonesia's Joko Widodo

Join IPSA and Professor Gershman to discuss the recent elections in Indonesia and the inauguration of a new era of politics. Joko Widodo is the first President without ties to the former Suharto regime, and won against a more conservative Muslim 'strongman' candidate. What does this mean for the consolidation of Indonesia's democracy? What are the biggest challenges the new President will face?
 
Speaker:
Marcus Mietzner, Associate Professor at the Australian National University and author of Money, Power, and Ideology: Political Parties in Post-Authoritarian Indonesia.

*Special Event: Democratic Regression in Southeast Asia and its Implications, in conjunction with the Conflict, Security and Development Series*

Since the late 2000s, Southeast Asia's democratization has stalled and, in some of the region's most economically and strategically important nations, gone into reverse. The region's rollback from democracy reflects a worrying global retrenchment toward anti-democratic political change, with significant implications for freedom, health, and prosperity locally and consequences for U.S. interests around the world.

Speaker:
Josh Kurlantzick, Senior Fellow for Southeast Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations
