Notes

"The Australia–Indonesia bilateral relationship has faced significant ruptures in recent times as a result of a string of high profile incidents related to border control, spying and trade restrictions. The volatility in the relationship is at the same time at odds with their stated aims for a strong neighbourly partnership. "Linking people" brings together specialists from a range of disciplines in a timely discussion to examine the breadth and sophistication of people-to-people links between these two countries. The contributors look behind the headlines and hot button issues to better understand the multitude of connections. These include language studies, education, bilateral mobility, crime links, marriage migration, diasporic interactions, as well as collaboration in the arts, trade, and the law. "Linking people" asks in what ways are these people-to-people links significant and how have they changed over time? As Indonesia progresses further towards rapid modernisation, it can also be assumed that the previous dynamic within the relationship will give way to new interpretations. This book highlights those interactions between Indonesians and Australians that take place outside of the formal bilateral relationship and can potentially contribute to shaping a more stable, vigorous and balanced bilateral relationship."--Back cover.
