Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Despite political fluctuations in the Indonesia-Australia relationship, the two
countries have usually been able to maintain stable and mutually beneficial ties
in the education sector. Australia has been a key destination for Indonesian postgraduate students and, partly through its aid program, has worked to improve access to quality education in Indonesia. A much smaller cohort of Australian students also study at Indonesian universities. Similarly, Indonesia is one of the most popular destination countries for the Australian Coalition government’s ‘New Colombo Plan’ initiative, which supports Australian students to study and undertake internships in-country in order to enhance their knowledge, understanding and awareness of the Asia-Pacific region.
