Could Indonesia Ever Be an Ally?

Canberra and Jakarta face similar threats in a changing Asia. Could this lead to closer ties?

The next issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines Australia’s relationship with Indonesia and the prospects of the two neighbours working together to boost their collective security as tensions in Asia increase.

The Jakarta Option looks at how Canberra should adapt to a changing Indonesia as the world’s fourth-most populous nation enters a new era under its next president, Prabowo Subianto.
