  • WOMEN’S POLITICAL PARTICIPATION IN THE CONSTITUTION: LESSONS LEARNED FROM INDONESIA AND THE U.S.A - May 22, 2014,

    Women should participate in politics because every person should have the same rights and opportunities to participate in political and civil life. Women’s participation in politics and government is fundamental to building and sustaining democracy and to the achievement of sustainable development and peace. Increasing women’s representation in the government can empower women. The fact show that countries with more women in parliament tend to have more equitable laws and social programs and budgets that benefit women and children and families. However, women face several difficulties in achieving representation in politics and government.
    There are some factors that hinder women’s political participation. From ideological factor, the assumption that women’s proper sphere is the “private” sphere has limited their participation, and this establish male domination in politics and government. From socio-cultural factor, women also face difficulties to participate in government because they have limited time available in public sphere. As mothers and wives, they spend most of their time for domestic works. For economic factor, women lack access to and ownership of productive resource and this make them difficult to participate in politics that is increasingly becoming commercialized.
    To increase women’s political participation, constitutions-making that will provide the legal foundation for governments, and the constitutional provisions enshrining women’s rights will be vital in defining and determining the status of women. Constitution-making that regulate gender quota has become a fast strategy to increase women’s participation in politics and government. Many countries have established new constitutions and laws that regulate gender quota, including Indonesia. Women’s political participation in Indonesia has been guaranteed by the 1945 Constitution , Law no. 68/1958, Law no. 7/1984, Law no. 12/2005, and Law no. 39/1999. All these laws guarantee women's representation in the legislative, judicial and executive. In addition, women's participation in politics and government is also contained in some government policies, such as the Presidential Instruction No. 9 /2000 that regulate quota of 30 % for women in parliament.
    It is important for scholars, students and activists to learn strategies for women’s political participation in the constitutions from different countries, such as the United States of America. This learning will give better understanding on how to increase women’s participation in politics and government.

  • Public Lecture "Social Protection in Indonesia: Evaluating the Health Insurance for the Poor Program." - June 16, 2014,

    In this presentation, the speaker will discuss the response of the Indonesian government to the financial crisis of 1997 by initiating a number of new social safety net programs that included health subsidies directly targeting the needy. The program involved the distribution of health cards to low-income households to provide access to government-subsidized health care at community health centers and public hospitals, and in 2005 it was replaced by a ‘Health Insurance for the Poor’ (Askeskin) program that targeted 60 million people. Using longitudinal research data involving 7000 Indonesian households, he evaluate the effects of this health insurance program. In the talk, he will address some of the following questions: How effectively has this program been targeted to those who need it? Has the health-seeking behavior of the program's participants changed? And finally, has the program improved health outcomes?
