The cardinal question in the discussion about problems and options of the third wave of democratisation is, therefore, whether and how persons who are interested in more inclusive, equal and sustainable development can make better use of and improve shallow democratic institutions, even in the context of uneven economic development, inefficient governance, and elitist politics.
The general question to be addressed in this essay, therefore, is whether and how there is any prospect in Indonesia today for popular politics of democratic citizen rights and their impartial implementation, despite unfavourable conditions?
