Indonesian Legal Resource Center (ILRC)
 

Year Established: 1997

Short Historical Background

The Indonesian Legal Resource Center (ILRC) was established in Jakarta in 1997 because of concern for the lack of meaningful and effective human rights and social justice education in Indonesia. In particular, there was a gap between the academics and civil society organizations (CSOs) in raising awareness of human rights as well as social justice education for the marginalized groups/people in Indonesia. To bridge the gap, ILRC decided to encourage the CSOs and the academics to cooperate in these tasks. Moreover, ILRC decided to facilitate cooperation between the academics and CSOs in responding to emerging social justice and human rights issues in the country.

Objectives

ILRC aims

  • To facilitate cooperation between academics and the civil society in raising awareness on human rights and social justice among the marginalized groups; and

Short Historical Background

 

While the Center was formally established in 2000 through the Mandate Letter of the Dean of the Faculty of Law dated 19 February 2000, the will and the urgency to establish an institution concentrated on studying human rights issues existed long before. The political change in Indonesia which necessitated government attention to human rights and the performance of its duties in partnership with other institutions, the call for foreign institutions to support the effort to protect and promote human rights, and the important role for intellectuals in this regard moved several lecturers in the Faculty of Law (led by Professor Harkristuti Harkrisnowo) to initiate establishing the Center.

 

Objective

 

The Center aims to help enliven an Indonesia that protects and promotes human rights according to its capability through planned research, education, socialization and advocacy programs as well as programs requested by other national and/or international institutions in pursuit of this objective.

 

Programs and Activities

 

The education program includes trainings, workshops and seminars. The Center had held the following training activities:

  2. Training for Jakarta Local Government Bureaucrats and Jakarta public officials. It included the research and preparation of a guidebook on human rights, with full funding support from the Jakarta Local Government.
  3. Training for the police about labor rights (both in labor relations and human rights contexts) in cooperation the International Labor Organization (ILO). A handbook for trainers was prepared for the training.
  4. Awareness raising on international human rights instruments through their translation into Bahasa Indonesia and the holding of workshops and seminars.
  5. Other seminars and workshops on human-rights-related issues such as the Indonesian criminal legal in comparison with systems in other countries.

This program is being undertaken in cooperation with Center for Research and Human Rights Improvement, Department of Justice and Human Rights Affairs.

Imparsial, The Indonesian Human Rights Monitor

 

Year Established: 2002

 

Short Historical Background

 

IMPARSIAL, The Indonesian Human Rights Monitor, was established in June 2002 by seventeen of Indonesia's most prominent human rights advocates who shared the same concern: the increasing tendency of state power assertion to the detriment of civil society. The founders of IMPARSIAL are: T. Mulya Lubis, Karlina Leksono, M. Billah, Wardah Hafidz, Hendardi, Nursyahbani Katjasungkana, Binny Buchory, Kamala Chandrakirana, HS Dillon, Munir, Rachland Nashidik, Rusdi Marpaung, Otto Syamsuddin Ishak, Nezar Patria, Amiruddin, and Poengky Indarti.

 

Ironically, although the new era after the fall of the New Order regime of President Suharto in 1998 has opened the way for greater public advocacy activities, the strength of human rights and other civil society groups has tended to decrease in recent years.

 

Objectives

 

IMPARSIAL aims

  1. To formulate a standardized approach to reporting and documenting human rights protection matters;
  2. To prepare and campaign for an alternative human rights policy; and
  3. To work as a partner of the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM).

 

Programs

 

Human Rights Defender: Imparsial advocates for the protection of human rights defenders, and support the proposed legal mechanism for their protection. It also monitors their situation and condition in Indonesia particularly in Papua, Poso and Aceh (areas that are in conflict and post-conflict situations respectively)

 

Security Sector Reform: Imparsial advocates for a change in the governance of the defence-security sector according to human rights and democracy values, professionalism, and good governance principle including reform in the defence-security institutions (intelligence, police and military forces).

 

Human Rights in General: Imparsial highlights some cases, such as those relating to death penalty, freedom of religion and belief, civil liberties (terrorism-related cases) and violations done by the intelligence agency and police.

 

Alternative Human Rights Policy – Imparsial develops and campaigns for an alternative human rights policy as a measure to improve State policy (including change in government regulations) based on human rights principles. This initiative started with a study of state policies that resulted in a publication for policy lobby. The publication is also distributed to local, national and international network partners of Imparsial.

KALYANAMITRA - Women's Information and Communication Center

 

Year Established: 1985

 

Short Historical Background

 

On 28 March 1985, five women of different backgrounds who shared mutual concern on women-related issues founded Kalyanamitra in Jakarta. Kalyanamitra started as an independent women organization that initially brought up issues on women workers, by processing information into discussion materials for them. Kalyanamitra also take sides with oppressed women among farmers, fisherfolk, and informal sector workers by promoting awareness of women’s rights. Therefore, Kalyanamitra collects data on any aspect of women and discuss them in seminars, trainings and public dialogues participated in by the common people.

 

The 1994 state closure of Tempo Magazine, the 1995 murder of Marsinah, and the rapes in Acan family triggered Kalyanamitra’s campaign against violence against women.

 

The 1998 rape cases involving ethnic Chinese women led Kalyanamitra to develop a movement on anti-violence against women either as a result of gender inequality or state violence.

 

Kalyanamitra, in performing its role, adheres to a set of values including taking the side of the weak, poor and oppressed women, non-violence, non-discrimination, and being democratic. The principles it adheres to include upholding women’s rights in achieving civilized life, transparency, taking sides of the victims, independence and accountability.

 

 

Objectives

 

Vision

This advocacy aims to facilitate the development of gender justice and the establishment of equality-based community system. It is directed at structural changes in the community (considered oppressive to its members or women), and also changes at the personal level.

 

Kalyanamitra networks at the national level to advocate for pro-women policies by lobbying the parliament and government institutions, and by mass action.

Kartini Network for Women’s/Gender Studies in Asia

 

Year Established: 2003

 

Short Historical Background

 

The Kartini Network for Women’s/Gender Studies in Asia was formally established in Manila in May 2003 after two years of preparation, during which time the network was called GINA, Gender Institutes Network in Asia. Kartini, named after the Indonesian pioneering feminist writer and activist, aims to create synergy between women’s/gender studies and feminist activism in the region. Kartini members are women’s/gender studies centres or institutes and feminist organizations in Asia and elsewhere.

 

The approach of Kartini research and activism is cross-cultural and comparative within the Asian context, incorporating both empirical work and theoretical reflection. Tailor-made advanced training courses will be organized both in research methodologies and in women’s theories around particular themes identified by the network.

 

Kartini has an open, dynamic and flexible structure. The participating institutes all have their own dynamics, interests, capacities and needs. Each member institution of Kartini has a track record of credible work in women’s studies and in gender and development in Asia. As such, a member institution brings to the network its capacities and activities that contribute in a meaningful way to the realization of Kartini goals. Through the network, member institutions promote each other’s programs, complement existing initiatives, and jointly build up projects of common interests.

 

Objectives

 

The Kartini Network aims

  1. To increase the knowledge base of the participating members;
  2. To strengthen their inter-disciplinary research skills;
  3. To contribute to the development of comparative and collaborative research programs that respond to the needs of women in the region; and
  4. To create an open, flexible platform of exchange in the area of women’s/gender studies between Asian scholars/activists working within academic institutes and in women’s organizations through regular Kartini Network Asian Women’s Studies conferences.

 

The network also aims to incorporate women’s rights in cultural and religious institutions and movements.

 

Programs and Activities

 

Research

 

India-Indonesia Comparative Research on Non Normative Sexuality of three constituencies: sex worker, widow and young urban lesbian, supported by Ford Foundation, New York. The objectives of the research are:

  • To gain a deeper understanding of issues related to sexual practices of women inside and outside the institution of heterosexual marriage;
  • To document sexual strategies that are empowering for women, the conditions under which they occur and the legal, political and religious context in which they take place
  • To develop indicators of sexual empowerment
  • To evolve a culturally sensitive sexual rights framework for advocacy and consciousness raising
  • To elaborate on principles of feminist research methodology related to the issue of sexualities and the right to sexual expression and empowerment
  • To make the issue of sexuality more visible within the countries of research through publication of material in regional languages including the outcome of the research on sexuality
  • To strengthen the research capacity within universities and NGO’s on the issue of sexuality, and to contribute to teaching activities in this field
  • To produce material to be used both for advocacy and for academic teaching purposes based on the research outcomes
  • To contribute to the building of a theoretical and methodological framework to analyze sexualities in an Asian context.

 

Advocacy

 

This project is a sequel and runs parallel to a proposal funded by the Ford Foundation on Sexual Rights and Women’s Empowerment. The Ford project entails comparative research in India and Indonesia. It coordinated by the Koalisi Perempuan Indonesia.

 

The Ford-funded project is primarily research-oriented and is undertaken from a human/women’s rights perspective. The present project is advocacy-oriented and is likewise based on a women’s rights perspective. It aims to disseminate the results of the research project among the wider public in India and Indonesia, stimulating a process of women’s sexual empowerment in both countries.

 

In India the activities under the Hivos supported project commenced only in March 2006, once the first phase of the project (supported by the Ford Foundation) on comparative research of Non-Normative Sexuality was completed. Due to financial constraints it was decided to cut the funds into two. The part to be spent within Indonesia, it was sent directly to Jakarta. It arrived only in August, hence activities there commenced later.

 

Specific objectives of the current project:

  • To produce a manual guide book/hand book on women’s sexual rights, in both English, Hindi and Indonesian, for use both by trainers on issues of sexuality and in the wider women’s movement in India and Indonesia, as well as in the region
  • To implement one research project on media analysis of sexuality
  • To hold two dissemination workshops in which the results of the research component will be discussed with relevant policy makers such as officials in charge of curriculum development
  • To hold two TOT workshops in which ten trainers each will be trained on women’s sexual rights. These workshops will also be attended by scholars and activists
  • To hold thirty training sessions in each country on women’s sexual empowerment, by the trainers trained in the TOT workshops, and with the use of the manual
  • To hold two press conferences in which the results of the research.

Setara Institute for Democracy and Peace

- Toward An Equal Society


Year Established: 2005


Short Historical Background


SETARA Institute was founded by individuals who were dedicated to the ideal that everyone should be treated equally while respecting diversity, giving priority to solidarity, and upholding human dignity. It was founded by people who would like to eliminate discrimination and intolerance on the basis of religion, ethnicity, tribe, skin color, gender, and other social statuses, and promote solidarity with the weak and victims of discrimination and intolerance.

 

SETARA Institute believes that a democratic society allows progress and mutual understanding, uphold honor, and recognize diversity.
However, discrimination and intolerance still exist and even lead to violence.

 

Therefore, measures that strengthen respect for diversity and human rights through broad participation of people should be undertaken to advance democracy and peace.
SETARA Institute is promoting the creation of conditions that would lead to an open political system based on respect for diversity, defense of human rights, and elimination of intolerance and xenophobic attitude.

 

The existence of Setara Institute constitutes another influence in promoting pluralism using the secular approach, which differs from another institution that works on similar issues using the theological approach.


Objectives

 

Setara Institute aims

  1. To promote pluralism, humanitarianism, democracy and human rights;
  2. To study and advocate pluralism, human-centered public policy, democracy and human rights;
  3. To launch a dialogue on conflict resolution; and
  4. To undertake public education activities.


Program and Activities

 

  • Human rights monitoring, particularly with regard to freedom of religion and belief, and the annual publication of Human Rights Performance Index
  • Policy review of presidential issuances (such as the President Instruction No. 2 year 2013 on handling internal security disorder)
  • Policy advocacy on Religious Life Harmony Legal Draft, National Security Legal Draft, Mass Organization Legal Draft, etc.
  • Case Tracking System (CTS) – an online database system on violations of religious freedom and belief
  • Short Messages Service (SMS) gateway on violations of religious freedom and belief
  • Research on a number of issues:
  • MP3EI/ master plan on Indonesian economic acceleration and development, and also human rights fulfillment
  • Accountability performance for a decade of terrorism eradication
  • Understanding Minority Rights in Indonesia
  • National educational system and the issues on violence of Freedom of Religion and Belief
  • Urban dynamics and the tension of social religious life
  • Citizen’s constitutional rights fulfillment index: A decade of constitutional court and Indonesian Republic Constitutional amendment.
  • Internet, freedom of expression and radicalism
  • Conference: national consultation for victims of Freedom of Religious and Belief
  • Advocacy for religious freedom.


Special Concern

 

  • Freedom of religion and belief: a pluralistic nation-building in Indonesia demands the strengthening and guarantee of freedom of religion and belief to ensure that the Indonesian nation would not be divided.
  • Law and human rights: regular monitoring and reporting on the human rights condition in Indonesia, and the publication of the Human Right Performance Index.
  • Minority rights: protection of minority rights intersects the issues that framed the founding of Setara Institute. While the international human rights instruments and the Indonesian Constitution guarantee the protection of the rights of minority groups, the mechanism under Indonesian law that would guarantee such rights is still weak.
  • Business and human rights: this program aims to make sure the adoption and integration of human rights principles in business practices, especially in implementing the policy of MP3EI/ masterplan on Indonesian economic acceleration and development 2011-2025.
  • Constitutional democracy: the practice of constitutional democracy decades after the amendment of Undang-Undang Dasar Negara Republik Indonesia Tahun 1945 (1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia) still could not protect the citizens, provide welfare, and dispense justice. A research on this area would develop an evolving framework with indicators on consistent institutionalization of democracy in the constitutional life of the country.

Women Research Institute (WRI)


Year Established: 2002


Short Historical Background


The Women Research Institute (WRI) was established in 2002 by a number of women activists who had concerns about three issues that marginalize women from the decision-making processes:
First, limited access of women to resources and decision-making Second, low level of women representation in public decisionmaking making institutions
Third, limited capacity of women’s representatives to influence formal as well as informal policy making processes.
To WRI, these three issues are the main obstacles that prevent women to from participating in public decision-making institutions. For that reason, WRI conducts research and investigations on efforts aimed at increasing women’s access to resources and decision-making, enhancing the representation of women in decision- making institutions, and empowering women’s representatives
to enable them to influence decision-making processes.
WRI conducts researches and investigations by using the feminist methodology. Since feminist methodology sets out from the experience of women, it allows WRI to look at, and amplify, the interests of women.
