Among the modes of attack that have been implemented by authorities range from hacking, intimidation, doxing, and torture in cyberspace.

One visible example of this violation took place when protests erupted to reject changes to the Law on the Corruption Eradication Commission last year.

Several anti-corruption activists and academics who disapproved of the law’s amendments were either hacked or intimidated.

While freedom and civic space went into a downward spiral, acts of violence have instead been on the up.

The Indonesian government has made the impression of ignoring and pushing aside cases involving severe human rights violations rather than resolving it.

Cases involving the role of security and defense authorities in civil affairs and the near-zero involvement of public participation in conducting a substantial democratic process have also been largely ignored by the Jokowi-Ma’ruf administration.

Take for example the legislative process. Indonesia's Jobs Law is a clear example of how public participation was ignored and was not taken into consideration.

So how has the performance of the Jokowi-Ma’ruf administration been after one year in office? Is Indonesia truly facing a democratic deficit? Is freedom of expression really at threat?

Why does President Jokowi appear so ignorant towards critiques and protests from the public? Can Jokowi bring Indonesia out of an economic recession? All of these topics will be discussed in detail during the ‘Satu Meja The Forum’ talk show on Kompas TV.
