The November-December 2022 edition of the Indonesian Update features a main report on the 16-Day Campaign on Anti-Violence against Women (16 HAKTP). The campaign, which was initiated by the activists from the Center for Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991, continues to be coordinated every year as a strategy for organizing individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
In the economic field, the Indonesian Update discusses the dynamics of increasing the excise tariffs on tobacco products. The determination of the CHT tariff for cigarettes at 10 percent in 2023 and 2024 has attracted many pros and cons. Next, we discuss Indonesia’s presidency of the G20. Indonesia’s presidency of the G20 has opened many opportunities that can increase the resilience of the Indonesian economy in the midst of the recovery process and the threat of a crisis.
In the field of law, the Indonesian Update raises the issue of corruption, which is one example of crime that cannot be defined because it will narrow its meaning in the law enforcement processes. Next, we discuss the resolution of cases and problems of the ITE Law through restorative justice.
In the political field, the Indonesian Update raises a topic that the DPR RI has only ratified one of the four bills that are deemed important to protect women in 2022. For this reason, the DPR RI needs to immediately discuss and ratify three bills that are considered priorities to protect women. Next, we discuss the formation of an ad hoc body for the 2024 Simultaneous General Election and Pilkada. In addition, we discuss a number of names that have emerged as candidates for the vice president position with the highest levels of electability according to the survey results of several institutions.
The monthly publication of the Indonesian Update with actual themes is expected to help policy makers in government and business institutions – as well as academics, think tanks, and elements of civil society, both at home and abroad, to obtain actual information and contextual analysis of economic conditions, political, social, and legal issues in Indonesia, as well as an understanding of public policy in Indonesia.
