Description

Domestic Trade Deregulation in Indonesia

Few of the price-distorting mechanisms were recorded centrally and can only be identified on-site, within the locality, making monitoring difficult. Moreover, because local governments have had inadequate local revenue bases, they are easily tempted to restore tariffs and toll barriers, despite the damaging effects on growth and welfare.

Gender Dimensions of the Crisis

If we take time to leaf through the previous five editions of the SMERU Newsletter, it will become apparent how little we have revealed of one of the most important aspects of the crisis, its gender dimension. We are all aware of how important this aspect really is and frequently discuss it. In fact we live with it; yet, we frequently forget to include it in our agenda. Gender is not just a matter of women, or even a matter of men and women. It is far more than that, for gender is a matter of human rights; gender is a development issue.

Newsletter No. 8: September-November 1999

In early December SMERU will be hosting two important events. On December 6, the Persepsi Daerah team will be reporting on the major findings arising from its numerous provincial surveys on the impact of the regional deregulation process. The following day a conference on "Monitoring the Social Impact of the Crisis: Lessons Learned in 1999" will draw on the experience of a range of individuals and organisation who have been involved in tracking the crisis over the past twelve months. We hope to report on both these events shortly.
