Institution Profile


This Almanac surveys the Indonesian security sector from the perspective of security sector reform and levels of democratic oversight of the armed forces. It maps out the various institutional and societal actors of the security sector and assesses – inter alia – the level of effective democratic parliamentary and civil society oversight of the security sector and considers current monitoring and guidance programmes. The volume seeks to achieve a better understanding of the current state of the Indonesian security sector, identify security sector reform (SSR) needs in the short and long term and, ultimately, create the necessary consensus for reform. It is projected that this Almanac will be updated bi-annually so as to report on the progress of reforms and the nature of emerging challenges. The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) has already used a similar methodology in Turkey since 2005, the Turkish SSR Almanac serving as a focal point in the debates in Turkish society and media over the policy and practices of the security sector as Turkey continues to move towards greater European integration.
