Abstract

In this special sub-theme of this issue of the Australian Journal of Asian Law, we offer four essays that each examine an area that has been the subject of significant reform efforts since Soeharto resigned in 1998 and the so-called Era Reformasi (Reformation era) began in Indonesia: human rights (Ken Setiawan), criminal sentencing (Rifqi Assegaf), spatial planning (Agung Wardana), and plantation licensing (Josi Khatarina).
