The Effect of Domestic Political Factors and Forces to the Foreign Policy Making in Indonesia
Endonezya'da İç Politika Faktörlerinin ve Güçlerinin Dış Politikaya Etkisi

Muhammad SAERİ [1]


This research aimed to examine the domestic political factors and forces that have a significant effect on the foreign policy making and determine how the Indonesian government implements and sets targets to be achieved in relation to the Rohingya case. In various literature on international relations, the concept used by IR scholars to refer to a country's policy towards the international world is foreign policy instead of foreign politics. Regarding Rohingya issues, Indonesia considers Southeast Asia (ASEAN) as the first strategic environment. Issues bringing implications for ASEAN stability have become one of the Indonesian foreign policy priorities, given that ASEAN instability will also negatively affect Indonesia's domestic conditions. Indonesia is regarded as primus interpares among ASEAN members and is highly expected to play an active role in overcoming regional issues. The Indonesian foreign policy implemented in this case is a communicative and constructive foreign policy.

Bu araştırma, dış politika yapımında önemli etkiye sahip olan iç politik faktörleri ve güçleri incelemeyi ve Endonezya hükümetinin Rohingya davası ile ilgili olarak nasıl hedefler koyduğunu tespit etmeyi amaçlamaktadır. Uluslararası ilişkiler alanındaki literatürde, akademisyenler tarafından bir ülkenin uluslararası politikasına atıfta bulunmak için kullanılan kavram dış ilişkiler siyaseti yerine dış ilişkiler politikasıdır. Rohingya ile ilgili konularda Endonezya, Güneydoğu Asya'yı (ASEAN) ilk stratejik ortam olarak görmektedir. ASEAN istikrarı için ele alınan konular, ASEAN istikrarsızlığının Endonezya'nın iç koşullarını da olumsuz yönde etkileyeceği göz önüne alınarak, Endonezya'nın dış politika öncelikleri arasında yer almaktadır. Endonezya, ASEAN üyeleri arasında eşitlerin birincisi sayılmaktadır ve bölgesel sorunların aşılmasında etkin rol alması beklenmektedir. Bu bağlamda uygulanmakta olan Endonezya dış politikası, iletişimsel ve yapıcı bir politikadır.
