Welcome to Suaka’s new website
“Suaka” is the Bahasa Indonesia word for asylum. It is a voluntary civil society network of organizational and individual members working for refugee rights protection in Indonesia.
Growing aware of the vulnerable situation of asylum seekers and refugees in Indonesia, existing civil society organisations and some concerned individuals came together in October 2012 and committed to assisting refugees and asylum seekers as part of their ongoing promotion and protection of human rights.
Currently, the key organisational members are Jakarta Legal Aid Institute (LBH Jakarta, Lembaga Bantuan Hukum Jakarta) and Human Rights Working Group (HRWG). Individuals also registered as the member of this network. In May 2015, individual members registered are 28 persons.*
