When in May 1998 General Suharto eventually resigned, hopes
were high that Indonesia would head towards a more
democratic future. Have these hopes materialized in any way?
The book provides an analysis of change and continuity as
manifest in key legislation on the political system and
human rights. Constitutional Amendments and new laws –
amongst others on political parties, elections, the press,
labour unions, human rights and human rights courts – are
assessed against Suharto-era legislation as well as against
international standards as laid down in international human
rights instruments.
