Bertahan dalam Impunitas or Enduring Impunity in English is part of our series of final report on participatory action research. This book focuses on stories of a total 60 women victims and survivors from five locations in Indonesia: Aceh, Yogyakarta, Kupang, Buru Island, and Papua. As pictured in the title, the stories inside the book are not merely about how the victims and survivors experienced violations during conflict, but also how they endure impunity in their daily lives by finding new energy for change and survival. This book gives us a clear picture on how violence is connected with impoverishment and violations of economic, social, and cultural rights.
The book is intended to reach various groups of reader: women in grassroot level, policy makers, academics, and ordinary people who never experience conflict before. It was written together with all field researchers from Jaringan Perempuan Indonesia Timur (JPIT), Kiprah Perempuan (KIPPER), Lingkar Pemberdayaan Perempuan (LAPPAN), Women’s Legal Aid (LBH Apik) Aceh, and Lembaga Studi dan Advokasi HAM (ELSHAM Papua), and was supported by Komnas Perempuan (Indonesia’s National Commission on Violence against Women).
