3rd Indonesia Research Day Panelist: Maryke Van Diermen

Speakers Profiles_3rdIRD-12 MAryke

Maryke van Diermen is currently completing her PhD in International Development at the University of Adelaide.  Her thesis focuses on social protection reform in Indonesia and reflects her specialisation in the areas of social policy, policy reform and political economy.

Her primary research goal is directed towards understanding the political underpinnings of social protection reform in Indonesia.  In particular, it examines the competing coalitions involved in policy discourse within social protection.  In doing so, it explores three areas of social protection in Indonesia: food security, social security and cash transfers.  These three areas are studied over several time periods, including the New Order, Asian Financial Crisis and Post-New Order.  This demonstrates how key actors and agendas have changed overtime and how this has led to reforms within social protection policy.  In this context, at the 3rd Indonesia Research Day, Maryke will elaborate on the role of NGOs in social protection
