AUSTRALIAN CULTURE AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE STUDIES
The Institute aims to develop a network of Indonesians who can interpret Australian society and policies for the Indonesian people and government.
Australian Studies Centre, University of Indonesia
The Institute continued its funding of the Australian Studies Centre (ASC) at the University of Indonesia. The centre is a valuable resource for advancing Australian Studies at the University. Ms Reni Winata was appointed as Director of the centre in 1997, and has made a very useful contribution to its operations.
As well as program funding to the ASC, the Institute funded certain research work and publications under the guidance of and with the cooperation of the ASC. Australia and Indonesia: The First Fifty Years by Richard Chauvel (1997) was an example of this cooperation.
Australian Alumni Association of Indonesia (IKAMA)
IKAMA is a group of young and energetic professionals with a strong interest in Australia. Following an important process of redevelopment of the Australian Alumni Association of Indonesia (IKAMA), the Institute helped fund a database upgrade. In 1998 the Australian Lecture Series was linked with an annual IKAMA dinner.
Australian Lecture Series and Multicultural Lecture Series
Under the Australian Lecture Series and the Australian Multicultural Lecture Series, prominent Australians were invited to present lectures in Indonesia.
