Title: The Politics of Accountability: the Case of Oil and Gas Policy in Post-Suharto Indonesia

Presenter: Dr. Yuka Kayane, Affiliated Researcher, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University

Date: Friday, June 23, 2017

Time: 15:00-16:30

Coordinator: Prof. Motoko Shuto

Abstract: Some prominent studies on contemporary Indonesian politics have stressed the president has prioritized the accountability to the state elites by forging oversized coalition that virtually provides no room for opposition and eliminates the accountability to the constituency. Contrary to this account, the presenter argues that the institutional reforms after the fall of Suharto regime in 1998 enable non-state actors who claim to represent the constituency to force the state elites to be accountable for them. Examining an oil and gas policy in Indonesia as one of the most contentious economic policies provides not only an alternative account of the previous literature, but also the analytical framework on how and when exactly, non-state actors can bring changes in the policy.
