Abstract:

This thesis investigates the future role of the ABRI Allgkatan Bersenjata Republik Indonesia or Armed Forces of the Republic of Indonesia in the post-Suharto era. It examines the factors which influence the sociopolitical role of the ABRI and postulates possible models for this role within the time frame of five to ten years from the end of Suhartos rule in Indonesia. Based on the change in the sociopolitical role, this thesis identifies the effects on other component roles of the ABRI including external defense, internal security, law enforcement, business involvement, and peacekeeping. It also highlights a road map linking observed events in Indonesia to the likely model which will be adopted by the ABRI in the future.
