Critique of Indonesia's Basic Agrarian Law of 1960

Review of the Basic Agrarian Law of 1960 (Indonesia)
This review of the Indonesian Basic Agrarian Law of 1960 was undertaken under the auspices of the World Bank-Government of Australia-Government of Indonesia funded Indonesian Land Administration Project in 1999.

The Basic Agrarian Law of 1960 is part of the applicable land law of East Timor which is presently under review. It is hoped that the many problems generated by the Basic Agrarian Law for the people of Indonesia - and the Timorese during and since the occupation ended - will be addressed in the new transitioanal land law; the English translation of which will be available next week. ETLJB will publish the draft transitional land law as soon as it is available.
