Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter examines the Indonesian government’s commitment at the G20 Meeting in 2017, to implement the UNGPs. It shows that despite its role at the international level in promoting UNGPS, the implementation of UNGPs at national level remains very slow. In 2017, the Indonesian Human Rights Commission took the initiative to launch the NAP on Business and Human Rights. Unfortunately, this NAP is difficult to be implemented because it does not come from the government. Nevertheless, there have been a number of recent positive initiatives taken by the government and court which may help to curb human rights violations by companies. This refers to the enactment of The Supreme Court Regulation (SCR) 13/2016 on Procedures in Handling of Corporate Criminal Cases and the President Regulation (PR) 13/2018 on the Disclosure of Corporate Beneficiary Owner. This article examines these two instruments and analyses the opportunities and challenges in the implementation of these instruments to help victims of corporate human rights abuse to seek remedies.
