ASSESSMENT OF INDONESIA’S HUMAN RIGHTS PROGRESS AND CONTRIBUTION

When Indonesia ran for re-election in to second term of UNHRC membership in 2007, Indonesia presented to the General Assembly a document of Indonesia’s voluntary pledges and commitments. There were 6 issues of pledges and commitments. Unfortunately, Indonesia has made progress only in one issue that is ratification of international instruments and the harmonization of domestic laws with international norms. From 2007 to 2010 Indonesia has ratified 5 human rights international instrument and enacted 2 laws in order to implement international law, despite Indonesia has not ratified yet several important human rights instruments such as Optional Protocol of the Convention against Torture. For the rest 5 issues, Indonesia did not make any progress, indeed in some aspects Indonesia moved backward, particularly in freedom of religions, strengthening engagement and partnership with civil society organization, and good government and the rule of law.
