Indonesia and the Absence of a Yearbook on International Law

Arie Afriansyah, Hadi Rahmat Purnama

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter observes the existence of the Yearbook of International Law specifically in Indonesia. It first briefly analyses the writing culture of legal science in Indonesia and identifies several hurdles for achieving international publication. Subsequently, the chapter tries to discuss the emerging desire to have more scientific publications that are policy-driven. It observes an increasing number of new journal platforms to provide the forum to publish the articles. Nevertheless, very few journals specialise in international law. Despite this situation, the chapter suggests that the publication of its own Indonesian Yearbook of International Law would be timely. Such urgency is not only for the benefit of practical purposes but also to develop international law in Indonesia. Finally, the chapter identifies some issues that might become challenges in the efforts to publish the yearbook.
