Abstract from Volume 1 No 1 (1999)

Indonesian Law Reform, or Once More unto the Breach: A Brief Institutional History

David K Linnan is Associate Professor of Law, University of South Carolina, USA. A version of his article was originally delivered at the conference 'Back to the Future? Prospects for Reform in Post-Soeharto Indonesia', Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives, University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia, 18-19 March 1999.

Law-reform efforts reach back to the 1950s, but the rule of law is still acknow-ledged to be weak in Indonesia. Written before the election of President Abdurahman Wahid in late 1999, this article critiques two existing views of law-reform efforts and develops a third interpretation in examining problems from the 1980s into the current Reform Period. The three interpretations counsel differing approaches to further legal develop-ment with implications for structural reform, as well as Indonesian perceptions of law reform.
