TERMS OF REFERENCE (TOR)

Jakarta International Defence Dialogue (JIDD) is an annual event organised by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia that serves to promote inter-governmental cooperation to address common challenges faced by countries in the Asia-Pacific, to provide a forum for officials and experts to discuss current and evolving trends in the region, to enhance Government-to-Government and Military-to-Military confidence-building, and to contribute to an environment that is favourable to a lasting peaceful order in the Asia-Pacific region, characterized by cooperation, transparency, and trust among governments and militaries alike.

JIDD has convened annually since 2011, and building upon the successful organization of the last four dialogues, JIDD 2015 will be held on 24-25 August 2015 and will focus on “Security,  Stability,  and  Prosperity  through  Defence,  and  Maritime  Diplomacy”. Security and stability of a nation are linked to its prosperity and economic development. In that regard, the security and prosperity of a country cannot be attained by simply improving and solely depending on its security environment, for they are significantly depended on peace and stability in the immediate region of which that country is geographically located. Being a democracy and ardent supporter of peaceful conflict resolution, as well as a country that geographically located between the two main oceans of the world, the Pacific and the Indian Oceans, through the convening of JIDD 2015 Indonesia advocates the pursuance of defence and maritime diplomacy as effective tools  to help  create  a secure  and stable regional environment with an aim to increase prosperity in a changing world.

The  Government  of  the Republic of  Indonesia believes  that  the  21st   century will  be  a maritime century. In response to this, the doctrine of Maritime Fulcrum (Poros Maritim) was introduced to serve as the main platform of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. The overwhelming majority of global commerce is travelled through the sea, which continuously demonstrates the reliance of the world on the important roles of seas. The assurances of security and stability at seas in significant manner help building mechanisms of threats mitigation to create strategic stability that makes possible the economic growth. Taking into account this consideration and in line with the pillars of Indonesia’s Maritime Fulcrum, maritime diplomacy is believed to be  among  the  essential factors  that  would contribute significantly to the regional peace and stability by addressing urgent problems occurring at seas, such as border disputes, drugs smuggling, weapon trafficking, human trafficking, illegal trading, maritime piracy, and maritime terrorism.
