Indonesia Should Postpone the Indonesia-EU CEPA Negotiations to Prioritize People’s Economic Sovereignty and Protect Human Rights

The Indonesian Civil Society Coalition for Economic Justice (MKE) urges the Indonesian Government to postpone free trade negotiations with the European Union while adhering to the main principles of international cooperation under the Constitution. The Indonesia-EU CEPA can potentially conflict with prioritizing the protection of human rights, people’s economic sovereignty and the fulfilment of democratic principles.

The Indonesia-EU CEPA (IEU CEPA) negotiations have entered their 16th (sixteenth) round, which began in 2016. The talks have a broad scope, not only about exports and imports, but also include negotiating how Indonesia adjusted their policies to the European Union’s business interests. The provisions in I-EU CEPA have the potential to erode the economic sovereignty of the people, have social and human rights impacts, and are contrary to the Constitution.
