Dear AoIR members

For you who are interested, I would like to let you know that a new 
report on social media and civil engagement in Indonesia has just been 

All best,



Indonesia is booming on social media. It has the second largest 
population on Facebook and also scores second on the amount of tweeps in 
Asia. Recently Hivos and University of Manchester's Institute of 
Innovation Research (MIOIR) carried out a research into the way civil 
society organisations and groups engage in civic activism by means of 
the use of Internet and social media in Indonesia. This research shows 
how various civic engagements impact the shaping of the civil society in 
the country, and more importantly, social change. It contributes to the 
overall debate on the use of social media and civil society 
organizations in Indonesia in particular and global at large.

The report “Citizens in @ction” was launched in Manchester on the 4th of 
April 2011.
