Despite being a major player in the ending of Soeharto’s New Order regime in 1998, today the Indonesian pro-democracy movement is a marginal force in Indonesian politics and the process of reformasi is in the hands of other (elite) forces. This book analyses why the movement failed to capitalize on its successes.

• Unique joint effort by concerned scholars and reflective activists to review and analyse the character, problems and options facing the Indonesian pro-democracy movement.
• First study to analyse why the pro-democracy movement failed to capitalize on its earlier successes and today is marginalized.

Despite being a major player in the ending of Soeharto’s New Order regime in 1998, today the Indonesian pro-democracy movement is a marginal force in Indonesian politics and the process of reformasi is in the hands of other (elite) forces. Accordingly, there are some who now question if the quest to establish what would have been the world’s third largest democracy is now a lost cause. This book represents a unique joint effort by concerned scholars and reflective activists to review and analyse the character, problems and options facing the Indonesian pro-democracy movement.
