Indonesia: Threats and Challenges to Domestic Security

February 22, 2019

Key Points

  • The frequency of terrorist incidents has reached a plateau, but the growing influence of extremism will prove to be difficult to manage.
  • Separatism, especially in West Papua, could prove to be a major security hurdle in the longer term, especially if backed by international support.
  • Ethnic and religious tensions have been a significant concern in the past, but the Indonesian Government today is better equipped to deal with large-scale violence.
  • Indonesia remains a piracy hotspot and the continued complacency of local governments will make it difficult to manage.
