During one of the workshops on Indonesian Land Law John McCarthy attended with the Minister of Spatial and Agrarian Planning.

 

Associate Professor John McCarthy from ANU Crawford School of Public Policy and Indonesia Project academic staff spent two weeks participating in discussions at the Ministry of Spatial and Agrarian Planning relating to Indonesian Land Law. Dr McCarthy met with the Indonesian Minister of Spatial and Agrarian Planning, Dr Sofyan Djalil on two occasions, the second time giving a presentation regarding his suggestions for a possible way forward with the revised land law.

John McCarthy was the co-convenor of the 2015 Indonesia Update on Land and Development in Indonesia, together with Professor Kathryn Robinson, which was held at ANU.

The deliberations request came directly from the Minister as a result of the Update book on Land and Development in Indonesia: searching for the people’s sovereignty, which was published in 2016. This is one of the examples of policy impact generated by the Indonesia Updates and the Update books.
