Challenges facing Australia and Indonesia
Preposterous Caricatures: Why is the Australia Indonesia relationship so difficult?

This latest instalment in the ever popular Perspectives:Asia seminar series is proudly presented by Griffith Asia Institute, Griffith University, the Australian Centre of Asia-Pacific Art (ACAPA), Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art.

Australia and Indonesia may be two neighbouring countries, but they have such significant differences of language, culture, history, ethnicity and religion.

Unfortunately, there appears to be a lack of understanding on both sides, which can lead to somewhat tense situations.

There are real challenges ahead as Indonesia seeks a greater role in international relations in the region.

This creates real challenges for Australia, where 'Indonesia literacy' has been in drastic decline for decades.

In this presentation, Tim Lindsey looks at the trajectory of the Australia Indonesia relationship, including recent bilateral crises.

Tim Lindsey is the Malcolm Smith Professor of Asian Law and Director of the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society at the Melbourne Law School, and was an ARC Federation Fellow from 2006 to 2011.

He is Chair of the Australia Indonesia Institute and member of the Victorian Bar.

His publications include Indonesia: Law and Society; The Indonesian Constitution: A contextual analysis; Corruption in Asia; Islam, Law and the State in Southeast Asia - Vol I: Indonesia; and Law, Society and Transition in Myanmar.

He is a founding editor of The Australian Journal of Asian Law.
