Abstract

In view of the broad-ranging terms of reference for this Review, this submission restricts itself to discussing educational aspects of Australian-Indonesian relations, and in particular it:
• underscores the central importance of Indonesian language and studies of Indonesia to the future well-being of the Australian community.
• recommends that Indonesian Studies be designated a strategic national priority;
• recommends the Australia Research Council and the Department of Education, Science and Training prioritise Indonesian Studies when funding both research and teaching;
• argues that special attention needs to be given to develop and support educational programs that assist Australian students to spend extended periods studying and living in Indonesia.
• recommends specifically direct and substantial Commonwealth government funding for the Australian Consortium for 'In-Country' Indonesian Studies (ACICIS).
