Reflecting on the 4th A.E. Priyono Democracy Forum
We are thrilled to share the success of the 4th 'A.E. Priyono Democracy Forum: Quo Vadis Legal Protection for Pro-Democracy Defenders', organised by Public Virtue Research Institute (PVRI) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, which was held in the mid-June.
This gathering brought together esteemed speakers, passionate students and young professional both in person at Erasmus Huis Jakarta and virtually from various locations. The event served as a platform for the exchange of ideas, focusing on the critical topic of legal protection for pro-democracy defenders.
Before the 'Democracy Forum', youth representatives from various universities had an open discussion about their views and activities on social issues during a lunch with Embassy staff and PVRI. Later, they were able to interact with panelists from the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, LPSK, KontraS and UGM on democratic participation and the role of activism in society.
Thanks to the active participation of panelists, students and young professionals attending the forum, the event served as a space for open dialogue in which different ideas and viewpoints could be presented. We look forward to seeing you at the next 'Democracy Forum', keep an eye on our socials for the details!
