About Us

CIPS is dedicated to providing policy analysis and practical policy recommendations.

The Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) is dedicated to providing policy analysis and practical policy recommendations to decision-makers within Indonesia’s legislative and executive branches of government.As a strictly non-partisan and non-profit think thank, CIPS promotes social and economic reforms that are based on the belief that only civil, political, and economic freedom allow Indonesia to prosper. We are being financially supported by donors and philanthropists who appreciate the independence of our analysis.

Being a partner in the Atlas Network of public policy think tanks, CIPS shares updates, stories, and analysis internationally. Our aim is to promote international dialogue and to encourage comparative research of key issues concerning Indonesia.

Moreover, CIPS trains new Indonesian talent in policy analysis and think tank management. We welcome interested individuals to join our research and activities. With this, we endeavour to support the next generation of think tank leaders who promote an open and prosperous Indonesia.
