Abstract


  • Indonesian mobility is often regarded as a present-day fact. In 2007 the number of Indonesians

    reported working abroad had reached 4.3 million, bringing in an income of

    US$6 billion in remittances (Widodo et al. 2009). By 2010 the numbers working

    abroad would have well passed 5 million, especially considering the numbers ‘smuggled’

    across the Indonesian-Malaysian maritime borders (Ford & Lyons 2011).
