Democratization in Indonesia has altered the political
decision-making processes in many ways. It has also brought about
tremendous change to the role of the Indonesian parliament in the
country's political system. Once characterized as a powerless
rubber stamp, the parliament has developed into a comprehensive and
more representative body able to fulfil its functions more
adequately. In the literature on democratic transition, the impact
of parliaments on regime changes and on the democratic
reorganization of the most important state institutions and
regulations is usually neglected. In the Indonesian case, however,
the national parliament was one of the most decisive actors and is
therefore the focus of this book. The author analyses the
parliament's contribution towards the process of democratization.
Thus, this book contributes not only to research on the Indonesian
democratization process, but also to the comparative research on
parliaments in transition processes in general.
