South-South Cooperation Strategies in Indonesia: Domestic and International Drivers

Chapter


Abstract


  • This chapter explores the historical evolution of Indonesia's SSC efforts in order to examine why SSC has re-emerged as a relatively prominent theme in Indonesia foreign policy and, in particular, whether this re-emergence has been driven by external forces, as it was in the Suharto years, or internal politics or some combination of these. Second, it considers what Indonesia's independent and active foreign policy means in the light of SSC activities. In recent years, Indonesian foreign policy has mostly been interrogated in terms of Indonesia's leadership ambitions; this chapter combines foreign policy and global development analysis to examine domestic, regional, and international drivers in politics and policy formation.
