After almost two years, the consortium involved in many consultative meeting with Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Statistic Indonesia, some of experts in global level as well as national level. We also work together with 4 of Civil Society Organization to conduct pre-test survey in 5 provinces of Indonesia (Jakarta, Riau, NTB, Sulteng and West Papua). I would like to say thank you for everyone who support and believe us.
