Staying the course: AusAID's governance performance in Indonesia

The Australian government's unprecedented $1 billion response to Indonesia's tsunami recovery more than doubled Australian aid to Indonesia. It enhanced the role of aid in Australia-Indonesia relations and put new strains on Australia's aid program in Indonesia. Geoff Forrester's paper in the Perspectives series looks at the underlying weaknesses in the governance elements of this program and provides feasible recommendations on how to address them. Acknowledging and addressing these institutional and policy weaknesses is a pressing matter.Geoff Forrester
