Welcome to the Indonesia Project
ANU Indonesia Project is a leading interdisciplinary international centre of research and graduate training on development and the economy of Indonesia, and the forefront of Indonesian studies in Australia and worldwide.
What we do
Our academic staff and PhD scholars conduct research on the Indonesian society and its economy to improve understanding and to sharpen thinking on development and economic policies in Indonesia.
- Dissemination of research
We have an important role in dissemination of research findings through publications, conferences, seminars and briefings. We publish the Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies and the Indonesia Update books. We organize the annual Indonesia Update conferences, the Hadi Soesastro Policy Forum, the Sadli Lectures, the Indonesia Study Group seminars, and the Indonesian Development Study Forum (FKP).
- Capacity building and institutional networking
These are pursued through a range of activities: maintenance of close ties with key economic policy makers in Indonesia, support for high quality publications by Indonesian researchers, and providing research grants for Indonesian-Australian research cooperation and travel grants for Australian students to undertake research in Indonesia.
ANU Indonesia Project was established in 1964 as part of the Division of Economics, now the Arndt-Corden Department of Economics, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU College of Asia and the Pacific. The Project obtains its core funding from The Australian National University. Since 1980 the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has provided an annual grant to the Project, most recently through the Australian Aid Program.
