This article explores the circumstances which led to the formation of these communities of Indonesian political exiles, and their changing relationships with both host and hostile governments and within the diverse communities in exile, as they struggled to survive the Cold War’s thaw. It attempts, firstly, to put Indonesia’s relations with the eastern bloc generally into the geo-political context of the Cold War, then to explore Indonesia’s specific relationship with key Communist countries, before focussing finally on how the Indonesian exiles in those countries fared with the rise of the New Order in Jakarta after 1965 and within the changing dynamics of the Sino-Soviet split and the end of the Cold War.
