NAP Development Process
Indonesia began its current process to develop a NAP in early 2019 under the leadership of the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs. The NAP is expected to be published in December 2019.
In September 2014, the government appointed the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) (Indonesia’s National Human Rights Institution (NHRI)) and the Institute for Policy Research and Advocacy (ELSAM) (Indonesia’s largest civil society organisation working on human rights) to lead a process to develop a recommended NAP. In 2017 these two organisations produced a policy paper (in Indonesian) on the topic which was used to prepare the recommended NAP. While preparing the policy paper a number of public consultations were held with stakeholders from civil society organisations, the business sector, and government agencies. It is unclear how this recommended NAP is currently informing the latest process to develop a NAP.
Consultations with civil society organizations were carried out to inform the substance of the recommended NAP on Business and Human Rights. UNICEF facilitated a consultation with children’s rights groups. Discussions were also held with legal academics. In addition, focus group discussions were held with several ministries/agencies that have authority in connection with business and human rights.
In 2019, the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs organised a focus group discussion to begin the NAP development process.
