Area of Expertise

  • The IDEA Association is an Indonesia civil society organization founded in 1995 to promote public policies that respect economic, social, and cultural rights through development planning and budget advocacy. While Indonesia has made significant progress in opening up democratic processes in the last decade, many marginalized or vulnerable communities have been left behind. IDEA gives a voice to these communities by empowering them to secure their rights through educational programs and advocacy training on national, regional, and local government budget policy.
  • Under the Partnership Initiative, IDEA hopes to expand on its ability to do budget monitoring and contribute to the strengthening of Indonesian democracy by increasing government accountability and transparency.
