Indonesia's public and private sector has an acute shortage of well-trained lawyers with up-to-date knowledge about transnational law and who can respond to the country's development needs. In the next four years, this project will help the Faculty of Law of Universitas Indonesia build the organizational and academic capacity to develop, implement and maintain educational programs on transnational law, asset recovery and international investment arbitration. The aim is to deliver graduates and applied research responding to the needs of public sector and stakeholders of international organizations in order to prepare Indonesia for its accession to the ASEAN Economic Community.
The project takes an integrated approach focusing on six strongly inter-related outputs with multipurpose missions, one-on-one personal guidance of UI Faculty of Law staff and intensive working sessions by prominent scholars and practitioners. Together with PhD and Master’s opportunities and secondments, this will equip the UI department for transnational law to implement sustainable action plans to improve academic content, teaching & research quality, and social outreach and dissemination in a gender-sensitive and labour market-orientated fashion.
Outcome of the project
At the end of the project, Universitas Indonesia’s Faculty of Law (FHUI) will have the organizational and academic capability to develop, implement and maintain educational programmes on transnational law, asset recovery and international investment arbitration which deliver graduates and applied research responding to the needs of the public sector and international organization stakeholders in order to prepare Indonesia for the imminent AEC.
