The Anti-Corruption Court in Indonesia: Successes, Limitations, Challenges, Prospects

Public Seminar

Wednesday 28th November 2012, 12.30pm to 1.30pm, Room OLD.3.28, Old Building, LSE

Speaker: Benjamin Tahyar

Chair: Roger Montgomery

The Anti-Corruption Court in Indonesia was established as part of the 2002 legislation creating the Commission for the Eradication of Corruption (KPK) in Indonesia in 2002. Since that time, the corruption cases tried by the Court have received considerable attention from the Indonesian public and from policy-makers inside and outside the country. The court's successes and failures, the challenges it has faced, and its prospects for the years ahead are all at the centre of the struggle against corruption in Indonesia. This lecture will focus on emergence and evolution of the Anti-Corruption Court in Indonesia since 2002 and examine its trials and tribulations over the past decade as well as the challenges it faces over the years ahead.

Mr Benjamin Tahyar is a lawyer and development specialist. He has an MSc in Development Studies from LSE and recently completed his PhD thesis on the politics of judicial reform in post-Suharto Indonesia at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.

Dr Roger Montgomery is a Visiting Senior Fellow at the LSE Asia Research Centre.
