The First Arryman Symposium
The first Annual Arryman Symposium was held at the Ford Foundation auditorium, Jakarta, on June 21, 2013. The symposium – organized by ISRSF (Indonesian Scholarship and Research Support Foundation) in cooperation with the Ford Foundation – features the presentation of the three 2012 Arryman Fellows’ research papers they produced during their one academic year as non-degree graduate students at Northwestern University, Chicago.
The research paper presenters are:
- Danang Kurniadi on “Political Corruption in New Democracies: a Comparative Study of Indonesia, Brazil and South Korea”
- Gde Dwitya Arief Metera on “Democratic Transition and the Changing Pattern of State-religion relations in Indonesia: A Study on Institutional Change at Subnational Level”
- Hipolitus Ringgi “The Ruling Ambition of the Military in South Korea, Brazil, the Philippines, and Indonesia during the Process of Democratic Consolidation.”
Prof. Michael Buehler of Northern Illinois University serves as the discussant to Gde Metera’s paper, while Mr. Luki Djani, a Ph.D. candidate at Murdoch University was the discussant to Danang Kurniadi and Hipolitus Ringgi.
Previously, on May 18, 2013 the three fellows presented their papers at a similar symposium held at the Buffett Center, Northwestern University.
The symposium was attended by around eighty people from academic, intellectual and media community. At the end of the symposium, ISRSF officially announces the four 2013 Arryman Fellows and one 2013 Arryman Scholar.
