There is concern within the Indonesian Armed Forces (Abri) about human rights abuses committed by its members. Part of the evidence is a manual on human rights recently issued by Maj-Gen Dunidja D., Military Area Commander in Irian Jaya. All soldiers in Irian Jaya are required to carry it as part of their personal equipment.
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
