Indonesia in 2016: Jokowi's Presidency between Elite Consolidation and Extra-Parliamentary Opposition

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    During his second year in power, Indonesian President Joko Widodo faced contradictory yet interrelated trends: while he consolidated his grip over parliament and improved his approval ratings, the president's remaining opponents shifted the focus of political contestation from the state's institutions onto the streets. Additionally burdened by economic uncertainty and rising regional tensions over the South China Sea, Indonesian democracy thus continues to be vulnerable, its outward stability notwithstanding.
