The overall objective for the programme is to support key Indonesian stakeholders in further consolidating and developing Indonesien democracy and governance. The aim is to strengthen and deepen the anti-corruption movement through transparency and accountability and to support interventions in promoting non-discrimmination, tolerance and civic values. The objective here is to strengthen the capacity and commitment of society, state and law enforcement agencies to uphold human rights, peace and tolerance in the region.   

Through the programme Denmark cooperates with different partners to support a deepening of democracy and improved governance by strengthening democratic and rights based civic values, countering trans-national crime and curbing corruption.
