The Indonesian Update — Volume XVII , No.3 – March 2023 (English Version)

The March 2023 edition of the Indonesian Update raises a main report on International Women’s Day, which falls on 8 March every year. This year’s commemoration of the United Nations World Organization for Women (UN Woman) takes the theme of embracing equity. Indonesia’s reflections on discrimination against Indonesian women today mean that the practices of discrimination and intolerance from an equality perspective still occur in all aspects of life.

In the economic field, the Indonesian Update highlights economic growth in the first quarter of 2023 shows a significant improvement compared to that in the previous year. Even though economic growth continues to increase, it is necessary to pay attention to inflation so that it can be kept stable. Ahead of annual important moments, such as Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr, there will be price fluctuations that will have significant effects on inflation. In addition, we discuss the distribution of People’s Business Credit (KUR) for women entrepreneurs.

In the legal field, the Indonesian Update raises the issue of the ineffective implementations of the death penalty in Indonesia. So, further studies are needed to encourage the abolition of the death penalty in the legal system in Indonesia. Next, we discuss the fulfillment of the right to water in the regulation of water management policies in Indonesia.

In the field of politics, the Indonesian Update publishes two articles on politics and sports. The first article discusses the election of Erick Thohir as the General Chair of PSSI. This indicates that the position of the General Chairperson of PSSI has indeed attracted the attention of politicians. The reason is that football as the most popular sport in Indonesia can provide a spotlight for politicians, which will be useful for them to win the upcoming elections. Next, we discuss a number of state officials and politicians who are currently occupying the positions of general chairs of the sports federations.

Apart from that, in the political field, we also discuss the verification and research stages (coklit,) which were carried out from 12 February to 14 March 2023. The coklit stage was one of the important stages for compiling the Final Voter List (DPT) for the 2024 Elections so that it can be better than those in the previous general elections.

It is hoped that the monthly publication of the Indonesian Update with current themes will help policy makers in government and business institutions – as well as academics, think tanks and elements of civil society, both domestic and foreign, to obtain actual information and contextual analysis on economic conditions. political, social, and legal in Indonesia, as well as an understanding of public policy in Indonesia.

Happy reading.
