At the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy on 1 August Dr Peter McCawley led the discussion on why Indonesia has largely fallen off the international radar screen in recent years. Despite being the largest country in Southeast Asia, Indonesia receives comparatively little international media coverage beyond stories linked with terrorism and Indonesia is often left out of discussion of East Asia's major countries. Australia's robust public debate about Indonesia and Jakarta-Canberra relations is very much the exception and not the rule. Dr Peter McCawley is the former Dean of the Asian Development Bank Institute and the former head of the Australian National University's Indonesia Project. He has worked on Indonesia and international development issues for close to four decades.
