In the past decade, 140 Indonesian fishermen drowned in Australian waters, a further 400 were imprisoned. JILL ELLIOTT reports that policies dealing with the issue are costly, ineffective and have tragic consequences. She suggests better alternatives.
This year Inside Indonesia commemorates its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this occasion, we are pleased to launch the Inside Indonesia Photography Competition. The competition calls for images that reflect the organisation's broad interest in social, political and environmental issues.
The competition opens April 1.
We aim to raise awareness about the diversity of Indonesian society, and about the struggles of those Indonesians who aim to achieve greater democracy, human rights, gender and racial equality, tolerance and environmental sustainability
