The international NGO Forum on Indonesia Development (INFID) with the support from Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) conducted research on the progress, potential and best strategy in implementing and expanding the adoption of the human rights city agenda across Indonesia in 2018. The research covered 100 districts/cities in Indonesia viewed by various parties to have adopted the human rights city concept and have earned recognition and appreciation from human rights agencies or institutions.


The research aims to identify the progress, potential and best strategy in implementing and expanding the adoption of the human rights city initiative in 100 districts and cities across Indonesia. It also documents ongoing progress made by human rights cities in Indonesia on the following aspects:


  • Local government commitment and willingness to implement human rights (promote, protect and fulfil).
  • Realization of human rights by local government.
  • Human rights priorities or programmes of the local government.
  • Local government efforts in the promotion, protection and fulfilment of human rights as indicated in existing regulations, structures and cultures conducive for advancing human rights.


The research adopts a mixed method that uses both the qualitative and quantitative approaches in collecting data from multiple sources. The research design combines descriptive and correlational studies for analysing qualitative and quantitative data. Based on the research design, the research begins with a qualitative study, followed by a quantitative study, then a qualitative study with the triangulation technique that combines qualitative and quantitative data analysis. The initial qualitative study involves desk research (data analysis of village potentials, Human Development Index, the recognition and appreciation shown to districts/cities by the Law and Human Rights Ministry), interview with CSOs, and an analysis of print and online media news.
