Abstract :

What  the  current  governments  of  Indonesia  and  Australia  can  do  to restrengthen its bilateral relationship? This question is timely to be raised up, as President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) assumed his presidency when IndonesiaAustralia  relationship  was  once  again  at  its  low  point  following  the revelations  of  Australia’s  spy  agencies  targeted  Indonesia’s  high  ranking officers.  The  relationship  further  deteriorated  following  the  refusal  of President  Jokowi  over  the  request  clemency  from  death  sentence  of  two Australians,  found  guilty  in  2006  of  being  the  ringleaders  of  a  gang  which plotted to smuggle heroin out  the country from Bali. This paper is on the view that in order to revitalize the bilateral relationship of Indonesia and Australia, both  governments  can learn from  what  once utilized  since  the 1980s,  that  is building  relations  by  a  so-called  setting  up  a  mateship  diplomacy.  Direct hotline communications between officers needs to be broadening while at the same time  people-to-people  contact  at  large  needs  to  be  deepened.  This way would  give  both  side  ample vanues where  both  governments  could  see more shared  similiarties of interests, which eventually becoming fertile seeds for a further meaningful collaborations.
