Indonesia has passed a new criminal code, amongst which are a raft of controversial new morality laws and speech restrictions, including banning sex outside of marriage, insulting the president, and expressing any view that runs counter to state ideology.

There are important implications for democratic freedoms in Indonesia, and human rights concerns on the implications of for women, religious minorities, and gender diverse groups.

What does the new criminal code imply for human rights in Indonesia? How has the Indonesian public responded to the new criminal code? What could it mean in the lead-up to the 2024 general election?

A La Trobe Asia event in collaboration with Human Rights Watch.

Panel:

  • Andreas Harsono - Human Rights Watch, Indonesia
  • Associate Professor Dirk Tomsa - Politics, La Trobe University
  • Dr Dina Afrianty - La Trobe Law School, La Trobe University

Chair: Associate Professor Bec Strating - La Trobe Asia, La Trobe University
