Understanding the Social, Economic and Health Vulnerabilities in Indonesia (UWA led DP) (2017–2020)

Abstract:
Although Indonesia is developing rapidly, around half the population is still clustered around the poverty line, contributing to their vulnerability. This project will identify key vulnerable groups and the factors and conditions contributing to their vulnerability. Using a common framework of the life course in 8 field sites across Indonesia, this multidisciplinary team will investigate the effectiveness of social networks and welfare programs in reducing vulnerability, and pinpoint strategies for reducing vulnerabilities in the future. The resulting publications will show how vulnerable citizens in Indonesia can be made more secure, helping to build a more stable and prosperous region.
