CFP : Inside Indonesia Special Issue (January 2020) : Sexualities in Indonesia

Indonesia has experienced enormous change in its relationship to sexuality in the last decade. In 2008, the Pornography Law was passed. In 2016, the ‘LGBT Crisis’ began with hundreds of people arrested for supposedly immoral acts. In 2017, Indonesia’s Constitutional Court narrowly rejected a petition to criminalise all sex outside marriage with a 5/4 vote.

This Special Issue explores Indonesia’s vexed relationship with sexuality and seeks contributions on topics such as:
the pornography law; the LGBT crisis; efforts to change the criminal code; impacts on individuals, groups and social movements; love; marriage; HIV, sexual health; reproduction; education and awareness.
