Could Indonesia Ever Be an Ally?

Canberra and Jakarta face similar threats in a changing Asia. Could this lead to closer ties?

The Jakarta Option looks at how Canberra should adapt to a changing Indonesia as the world’s fourth-most populous nation enters a new era under its next president, Prabowo Subianto.
