Gender Equality Qualitative Study Report


The International NGO Forum on Indonesian Development (INFID) is committed and has the mandate to reduce gender inequality in Indonesia’s various development issues. One of the reasons for INFID to contribute to this issue is the concern over the high number of cases of sexual violence and the high rate of child marriage in Indonesia.

Currently, INFID considers it necessary to provide support to victims of sexual violence and efforts to prevent child marriage through a qualitative study on “Stakeholders’ Perceptions and Support of the Anti Sexual Violence Bill (RUU P-KS) and Law No. 16 of 2019 concerning Amendments to the Marriage Law”. We work together with researchers who have consistently strived to advance gender equality and encourage the birth of various policies that favor women.

Like the RUU P-KS, which faced various challenges in the legislative process, this qualitative study also faced challenges when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, including Indonesia. The main challenge faced was the delay in the previously planned schedule. Concerns about the spread of the virus in the early days of the pandemic also caused respondents to limit themselves to being interviewed.

Despite various obstacles, finally, this qualitative study report book has been completed. This book presents various views of stakeholders on the urgency of the RUU P-KS, which provides protection and recovery efforts for victims of sexual violence. This research report book also contains about how to encourage the realization of child marriage prevention in Indonesia.

We recognize that this study still has some flaws. We hope that the results of this study can provide enrichment for previous studies on support for the RUU P-KS and can strengthen advocacy to push for its ratification. Finally, we would like to thank those who have contributed to the birth of this book.
