Organized Panel Session

Framing Public Opinion in Indonesia

Friday, July 6
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Gulmohar, First Floor

This panel examines new trends in public opinion formation in Indonesia. Based on the assumption that political agendas are shaped by an increasingly diverse set of actors and institutions who often have no formal affiliations with political parties or established media outlets, the panel analyses the ever-growing prominence of pollsters, intellectuals and experts on the one hand and social media phenomena such as buzzers, bloggers and fake news syndicates on the other hand. The main aim is to shed new light on how the increasingly complex dynamics of public opinion formation influence public policy and struggles for power. To that end, each paper considers four main questions: First, who are the new generation of public opinion makers? Second, what motivates them and what aims do they pursue? Third, what strategies do they use to achieve their aims? Fourth, what broader impact do they have on Indonesian democracy?
