Description


The collective research effort of senior and junior scholars from Indonesia and beyond, The Road to Nusantara: Process, Challenges and Opportunities examines the political, economic, socio-cultural, security and environmental implications of President Joko Widodo's historic plan to move Indonesia's national capital from Jakarta to Nusantara, East Kalimantan. This volume will be of interest to policymakers, Indonesia's neighbours near and far, prospective investors, and students of Indonesia who wish to understand the complex challenges underlying this megaproject.

"The chapters in this book are important contributions to the study of Indonesia today .... Ground-breaking and meticulously documented using post-independence archival material and contemporary essays on new capitals .... Essential reading for a better understanding of the impetus behind Nusantara, made even more critical as the future of Nusantara hangs in the balance." -- Edward Lee Kwong Foo, Chairman of Indofood Agri Resources Ltd and former Singapore's Ambassador to Indonesia, 1994-2006
