Design and architecture in Indonesia

Design and architecture in Indonesia

  Alexandra Crosby

The role of design in social change has received increasing public attention in the last decade. User-centred, iterative, participatory flexible approaches to the design of objects, spaces, communications, services and experiences are valued by policy makers and firms all over the world to address issues of social justice, sustainability and urban development. Simultaneously the territory within which design operates has been changing. Design is sometimes used synonymously with consumerism, urban tastes, and globalisation, such as ‘designer handbags’, but what design is and what it does is much more complex, and many of these new definitions of design are emerging in Indonesia.

Feeding Indonesia

Feeding Indonesia

Food security is an urgent policy problem in Indonesia but opinions are divided about how best to feed the poorest and most vulnerable

Thushara Dibley and Eve Warburton

Indonesia is a country with a rapidly expanding middle class and a growing economy. Its neighbours are taking more notice, and Indonesia now plays a pivotal role in regional politics. Yet for many Indonesians, the daily task of feeding their families can be a real challenge. Even with government subsidies, Indonesia has the most expensive rice in the region. The government's commitment to reducing heavy fuel subsidies is expected to impact the price and accessibility of rice and other basic foodstuffs. Poor families are the most vulnerable in this situation.

Incarceration in Indonesia

Nikki Edwards

An examination of prisons and detention centres shows that Indonesia still has a long way to go in protecting human rights

The international media has long carried stories about the imprisonment of Schapelle Corby in Bali and of the Indonesian children convicted of people smuggling and held in Australian gaols. But until the recent riot in Tanjung Gusta prison, where inmates were being held in facilities stretched to almost double capacity, the stories of the thousands of Indonesians who are locally imprisoned failed to make the headlines. This edition of Inside Indonesia begins to investigate these people’s stories. The articles delve into the depths of Indonesia’s gaols, seeking to understand who is incarcerated, under what conditions, and why.
