The Indonesia-Netherlands Rule of Law and Security Update (INLU) is turning into a biennial event, building on the success of the INLU in November 2014 in the Hague and the INLU in January 2018 in Jakarta. The INLU is designed as an open platform where policy makers, experts, researchers, and practitioners from Indonesia and the Netherlands meet to present and discuss topics in the Rule of Law and Security field.

The Update is aimed to highlight achievements in the longstanding bilateral cooperation as well as to identify how the relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands can strategically strengthen and develop both institutional relations and individual capacity, to address new and current problems in upholding the rule of law and safeguard security. The meeting is also an opportunity for participants from both countries to exchange knowledge, share experiences, and develop networks. Moreover, this update is prepared under the umbrella of a joint Working Group for Justice & Development, which meets in the Netherlands as well as in Indonesia, representing a broad constituency of agencies and people in both countries. The Working Group has about 40 members and is linked to the Netherlands’ Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law (KPSRL). The Working Group has regular interactions with representatives of government in Indonesia and the Netherlands. The operational coordination is ensured between the Center for International Legal Cooperation (CILC) in the Netherlands and Atma Jaya Catholic University and Nuffic Neso in Indonesia.

The event is divided in 2 days.

The main theme of the INLU2019 will be “Law, Legal Education and the Circular Economy”, with an emphasis on “Access to Justice.” This will allow for referring to the Indonesian National Planning Document for Law Reform (RPJM) as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as globally established results framework, relevant both for Indonesia and the Netherlands.

The first day of the INLU will be a public symposium and panel discussions featuring government officials and other relevant policy makers for a larger audience (300+ participants), and the second day will be a series of substantive panel workshops in smaller groups, followed by a closing session.


The Netherlands and Indonesia have a longstanding relationship in the fields of rule of law and security cooperation. The two countries' legal systems share a number of commonalities in substantive law and legal structure. For this reason, Dutch sources of law and experiences are potentially more relevant to Indonesia than those of other countries. Such 'systemic' similarities are likely to promote effective exchange of information. Over the years Indonesian and Indonesian and Dutch legal institutions, researchers and practitioners have been actively collaborating in the legal and security sector through research, providing technical assistance in Indonesia and running cooperation projects between organizations. This has resulted in an extensive network throughout Dutch and Indonesian academia, civil society, the private sector and government, including hundreds of Indonesian alumni who studied Law or other legal studies in The Netherlands.

In November 2014, the Indonesia Working Group of the KPSRL organized the first Indonesia Netherlands Legal Update (INLU) in The Hague, the Netherlands. The conference looked at trends and developments in both Indonesia and The Netherlands; and identified themes for the post-2015 legal cooperation. The discussions during the INLU demonstrated that many of the fundamental issues in the Indonesian rule of law reform process, such as public trust in legal institutions, access to justice for common citizens, or the quality of legal education, are part of the debate in Indonesia as well as in the Netherlands and are therefore attractive subjects for further exchange of ideas and experiences and future cooperation.

In January 2018 the second Rule of Law and Security Update was organized in Jakarta and was a great success. The meeting was attended by three hundred participants and honored by the presence of the Indonesian Minister of Justice and Human Rights, the Indonesian Minister for Planning as well as the President of the Hoge Raad and the Head of the Indonesian Supreme Court (MA). The Update identified several new challenges and key issues for future cooperation, such as cybercrime, which in due course informed further exchanges and operational collaboration in research, education and knowledge programming.

The INLU 2018 report is available at:

The Rule of Law and Security Update in 2019 will review the challenges and suggestions from the previous Update and insert new issues where relevant. A specific aim is to further review and align with national priorities in both countries, taking into account that Indonesia will have a new government inaugurated in October 2019, after elections in April. The Update will also continue to develop and expand dialogues between established collaborating institutions and explore further collaboration possibilities that can strengthen a mutually beneficial relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands in priority issues or areas.
