The Centre for Elections, Democracy, Accountability and Representation (CEDAR) has published a new podcast episode title ‘What can we learn from Indonesian democracy?’ in its recently launched People, Power, Politics podcast series.

This episode features Prof Dan Slater (University of Michigan) as guest and CEDAR’s Dr Petra Alderman as host. Dan and Petra talk about the state of Indonesian democracy, the key ingredients that have kept it going so far, and some of the core lessons that we can learn from it. Their discussion is based on Dan’s recent article written for the Journal of Democracy.

People, Power, Politics brings the latest insights into the factors that are shaping - and re-shaping - our political world by talking to leading thinkers from across the globe. Join us to better understand the factors that promote and undermine democratic government around the world and follow us on X (formerly Twitter) at @CEDAR_Bham!
