Transnational Social Policy Development: The Case of Indonesia
, by Alexandra Kaasch, Mulyadi Sumarto and Brooke Wilmsen
The scope, depth, intensity and impact of globalization is able to shape domestic social policy, with global social policy discourses becoming increasingly influential at the national level. Indonesia’s recent social policy developments exhibit such transnational dimensions in their formulation. The country case study will ask; which global and local social policy actors, institutions and processes significantly impact on Indonesia’s emerging social policy making? What is the interplay between them? How do domestic institutions and actors mediate global factors in the process of social policy development?
The Indonesia case study for the UNRISD project "New Directions in Social Policy: Alternatives from and for the Global South" investigates the political economy and policy dynamics at three levels: national, international and the international-national nexus.
