In the summer of 2013 CILC was asked to create a clearing house instrument for the bilateral “Indonesia: Justice and Development” Working Group of the Rule of Law Knowledge Platform. This request resulted from an acute need to streamline existing mechanisms for Dutch and Indonesian legal cooperation, specifically in improving the efficiency and in some cases relevance of the various study and exchange visits and requests for cooperation of Indonesian (legal) institutions. Over the years, a large number of short-notice requests from Indonesian and Dutch legal institutions had resulted in uncoordinated training sessions or study visits to the Netherlands, with overlapping subjects and programmes.
The assignment of the Clearing House Coordinator (CHC) started in September 2013 and is initially planned for one year. He will act as the main contact person for all Dutch and Indonesian exchange partners and will support them in the planning and coordination of initiatives. The CHC is stationed at the CILC office, but will carry out his tasks to the benefit of all members of the Working Group. CILC upholds recognised principles for aid effectiveness in general and this initiative is an example of our commitment to increasing the effectiveness of the legal cooperation programmes between Indonesia and The Netherlands.
