I was invited to be the Keynote Speaker at the International Conference of Social, Humanities, and Government Sciences (ICSHGS) 2017, organised by Universitas Tamansiswa, Palembang, Indonesia. The COnference was held alongside the annual meeting of Asosiasi Dosen Ilmu Pemerintahan Seluruh Indonesia (ADIPSI).
I presented a paper entitled “In Three Years We Would Have Solved This: Jokowi, ASEAN and Transboundary Haze”. This paper was also awarded best paper of the conference, and is due to be published in the ADIPSI journal, Jurnal Studi Penerintahan: Journal of Government and Politics later this year. The Prezi for the presentation can be found here. I also had the opportunity to present the same paper to a public audience at Universitas Tamansiswa.
The excellent organisers, Dr Maulana and team, arranged for the participants to have an audience with the Deputy Governor of Sumatera Selatan, H Ishak Mekki at the Governor’s Residence. I was also lucky to have the opportunity to personally dine with the Rector of Universitas Tamansiswa, Dr H. Joko Siswanto.
