Why study International Relations in Indonesia?
Indonesia, a member of the G20 group of nations, is playing an increasingly important role in regional and global politics. It brings to its approach to international relations a unique perspective formed out of its particular historical, cultural and political context. It has strong historical and political links with the non-aligned world, having hosted the first Asian-African summit in Bandung in 1955. With the largest Muslim population in the world, its links with the Islamic world are cultural and personal as well as political. Indonesia was a founding member of ASEAN, the Association of South East Asian Nations, and is playing a growing role in Australian-Pacific defence, security and immigration issues as well.
