In assessing the role knowledge plays in policy-making in Indonesia, this study undertakes to:

  1. describe formal policy processes
  2. uncover the realities or informal practices of policy processes
  3. assess the factors that motivate policy-makers to invest in, demand, and/or use knowledge in policy-making.
