In 2014, we established in cooperation with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) the Consortium for Maritime Security in Indonesia. The Consortium is the basis and driver for our activities in Indonesia Consortium members are: the Indonesian Maritime Security Agency (BaKamLa); the Indonesian Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Affairs (KKP), the Indonesian Navy, Universitas Indonesia and Universitas Gadjah Mada, and the International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance (ICITAP, USA).
In 2016, we signed an Memorandum of Understanding with the IOM and received funding for two research projects:
- the Maritime Dimension of Transnational Organised Crime in Indonesia from the Transnational Organised Crime Funding Scheme from the Economic and Social Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK). (see website)
- Decreasing the Vulnerability of Indonesia’s Fishing Communities: Countering the Threats of Illegal and Unsustainable Fishing from the British Council/Newton Fund Institutional Links scheme
