Australia-Indonesia Senior Editors Program

The Australia-Indonesia Senior Editors Program aims to facilitate greater exchange and knowledge sharing between senior editors from Australia and Indonesia and to encourage analytical coverage of the other country through alternating in-depth visits.

The program generally runs for one week, and takes place in either Australia or Indonesia.

Activities generally include:

  • meetings with government ministers, politicians and senior interlocutors
  • site visits to educational, political and/or cultural institutions
  • roundtable discussions with senior editors from the host country on national and international political, strategic and security issues.

The Australia-Indonesia Institute covers the cost of business class return travel from the participant’s state or territory capital, accommodation, meals and transport.
