Since 1998, Indonesia’s political system has experienced moments and phases of democratization, but also of autocratization. Most recently, the Covid pandemic and the subsequent restrictions in schools have exacerbated inequalities in the realm of education. Assuming that education is a central prerequisite for political participation, this panel focuses on different aspects of the Indonesian educational landscape. Three planned presentations focus on different aspects of Indonesian education. In addition, we welcome contributions in the broad field of Democracy and Education in Indonesia for a fourth presentation. We also invite colleagues interested in this field to serve as discussants on this panel.
