The Challenges of State-Centric Security Governance in Indonesia‘s Post-Suharto Democratic Era
In the last five years, the state-centric security policy has been strictly implemented by the government OF Indonesia. The security policy began to increase especially ahead of political events across the country. Series of police-military operations, arrest warrants, and travel bans have been conducted by Indonesia’s authority in response to political and security issues. Nevertheless, for security reasons, the government insisted that all actions were taken by state apparatus comply with national laws such as terrorism, counter-coup attempts, hate speech, and violations related to electronic information production and transaction perceived as a threat to national and sovereignty. This paper attempts to examine the Indonesian security governance amid the democratic era and people’s high participation, notably in social media.
