Counter-terrorism from a Criminologist’s Perspective

Today, as part of an ongoing project on Indonesia’s deradicalization program, I spoke with police expert Dr. Adrianus Meliala at the University of Indonesia. Meliala discussed how counter-terrorism efforts have changed in a post-Suharto and post-9/11 society.

Indonesia has charted some important successes, but in Meliala’s analysis, better coordination between the different government agencies is needed.

Meliala also offered some background to the US-supported “Detachment 88” counter-terrorism force based in Indonesia. Watch an excerpt below.
