Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Indonesia will continue to receive new asylum-seekers as part of mixed migration movements. The Government is expected to implement a Presidential Regulation that will provide long-awaited legislative guidance on asylum issues, which should discontinue the detention of people of concern, and should call for the establishment of designated shelters. This latter aspect will require UNHCR to increase its field presence and put mechanisms in place for effective monitoring and protection interventions.

Key priorities

In 2017, UNHCR’s operation in Indonesia will focus on:
•    Ensuring access to territory and asylum procedures, including registration, documentation, and refugee status determination; 
•    facilitating capacity building on asylum issues to expand protection space; 
•    addressing the needs of vulnerable individuals, particularly children and women; 
•    reducing protection risks, including from sexual and gender-based violence, to child protection, and from detention; 
•    addressing gaps in birth registration as a measure to prevent statelessness;
•    facilitating comprehensive solutions through resettlement and voluntary return, as well as through advocacy for temporary stay measures, labor schemes, access to livelihoods, and local integration for those with close links to Indonesia. 

Without sufficient funding UNHCR would face challenges in meeting the needs of the people of concern, particularly those of children and women who are most vulnerable to protection risks and exploitation.
