Sindhunata Hargyono: “Buru Island: A Prism of the Indonesian New Order”
Respondent: Foroogh Farhang, PhD Student, Anthropology

Buru Prison Island is a striking symbol of brutality in independent Indonesia. The author claims that the Indonesian New Order materialized its totalitarian ambition through rendering untried political prisoners superfluous in Buru. The techniques in which political prisoners were rendered superfluous travelled well outside the island and refracted to the Indonesian society during the Indonesian New Order.

Norman Joshua: "The Failure of Indonesia's State Monopoly: The Pertamina Crisis of 1975-1978"
Respondent: Dr. Wen-Qing Ngoei, EDGS Rajawali Research Fellow, History

Discussions regarding the Pertamina Crisis of 1975 have focused excessively on corruption as a single decisive factor. This paper explicates how Pertamina’s underperformance resulted from a combination of the nature of the Indonesian oil and gas industry, bureaucratic incompetence, corrupt practices, overexpansion, and the state of the global financial market during the 1970s oil boom.

Indonesian lunch will be served.
