The Road to Nusantara: Process, Challenges, and Opportunities
27-28 October 2022
In-person: Seminar Room 1 & 2, ISEAS–Yusof Ishak Institute
Online: via Zoom webinar

After many years of discourse, the Indonesian government has decided to relocate the capital city from Jakarta to Penajam Paser, East Kalimantan. The new capital, Nusantara, will be a massive project that requires intricate policy decisions at the national and sub-national levels. With the current administration having less than two years in its term to prepare the legal and policy foundation and basic infrastructure for this historic relocation, questions remain on the feasibility and continuity of the ambitious project. The potential impact on the wider region of Indonesia’s capital relocation makes it a relevant topic for Southeast Asian policymakers and scholars of today.

Join us in exploring the process of realising Indonesia’s new capital city, Nusantara, and to discuss the possible challenges and opportunities that could arise during this transition. This is a joint conference by the ISEAS–Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore and Indonesia’s National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). This conference is supported by Konrad Adenaur Stiftung.
