Description

This book studies the challenges for Indonesia, once a miracle economy, as it faces premature deindustrialisation, rising inequality and domestic and external factors impacting its export-oriented industrialization. Since the fall of Soeharto, Indonesia has undergone a far-reaching systemic transition from centralised and autocratic governance to a highly decentralised and democratic system. Complicated by regional variations, the country is now being called upon to respect labour rights and, amidst slow global economic recovery, is facing increased competition from other low-labour-cost countries, especially within the ASEAN Economic Community. Tadjoeddin and Chowdhury posit that Indonesia cannot recreate its past miracle based on cheap labour and suppression of labour rights. It will need to move quickly to high value-added activities driven by productivity growth and to develop its domestic market.



Indonesia holds a highly relevant place in Asian Studies as it is the 4th most populous country in the world.

It is also a member of ASEAN and one of the G-20 major economies.

Analyses Indonesia's democratic transition from a new perspective, i.e. that of political economy, while previous literature has focused on political or sociological approaches.

Combines the study of political economy and conflict studies in an interdisciplinary fashion.

Does not only cover one type of conflict, but analyses four: secessionist, ethnic, everyday and electoral conflicts.

Unique in the sense that it deals with Indonesia's violent internal conflicts rather than just focusing on external relations.

Texte du rabat

This book is very timely. I endorse the book's conclusion that Indonesia has to move on to a productivity driven growth path, and the key to successful job-rich reindustrialization for shared prosperity is integrated domestic markets based on stronger backward and forward linkages where regional minimum wages can be an important industry policy tool.'
Armida Alisjahbana, Padjajaran University, Indonesia

Tadjoeddin and Chowdhury have written an important new study of employment and industrialization in Indonesia. There is much food for thought in their clearly written and provocative analysis. The authors are to be congratulated for this timely and stimulating study. Hal Hill, Australian National University, Australia
