JAKARTA, INDONESIA IS THE CENTER FOR SECURITY AND DEFENSE DIALOGUE AS WELL AS IMPLEMENTATION
The Jakarta International Defense Dialogue (JIDD) is the region’s principal security coordination mechanism on a global scale. Because Asia-Pacific is an extraordinarily large and diverse region encompassing the majority of the world’s population, we face an extremely wide range of defense and security challenges. The core objective of the Dialogue is the promotion of intergovernmental cooperation to meet common perceived threats. The Dialogue provides a framework for Indonesian engagement inter-regionally as well as internationally.
JIDD serves as a forum for participating officials and their counterparts to discuss bilateral and multilateral initiatives, to address issues across all areas of defense and security, and to ensure the ongoing efforts to promote new multilateral cooperation.
JIDD examines the changes in the international security environment over the past decade and how they have prompted an evolution in defense and security focus. The elevation of counter-terrorism and counter-proliferation efforts alongside conventional military cooperation, signals that increased emphasis is now being placed on these issues. It also suggests that policy-makers may be concerned that existing initiatives are not sufficient enough to address transnational threats effectively.
JIDD is organized specifically to facilitate easy communication and fruitful contact amongst all of the participants, which will help to create a sense of community among the most important policy-makers in the defense and security establishments of regional states and of major powers with significant stakes in Asia-Pacific security, as well as the wider audience of supporting stakeholders.
JIDD is hosted by the Ministry of Defense, Republic of Indonesia and organized by the Indonesian Defense University.
