Research overview

 

Responding to challenges and existing knowledge gaps facing the cooperative movement, this mapping research seeks to provide exhaustive information on cooperatives worldwide. This is achieved through a process jointly conducted by the ICA and its four regional offices – Cooperatives of the Americas, Cooperatives Europe, ICA Africa, and ICA Asia-Pacific – using a common methodology. Each office collected the input of ICA members present in the countries within its geographic area, by using the same questionnaire, and completing it with relevant national statistics, in order to obtain an accurate picture of the national situation. Mapping out cooperatives in each country provides a more precise picture of the cooperative context at national and regional levels, enhances the movement's visibility, networking, partnerships opportunities, as well as advocacy, and empowers cooperators by providing them tools for positive change.

History

 

The cooperative movement in Indonesia has a long and rich history. The role and importance of cooperatives in the Indonesian economy and society continues to grow as it undergoes transformation through a process of rehabilitation, reorientation, and revitalisation to meet current and future needs. 

Overview

 

ICA has two members from Indonesia.



In Indonesia, the research questionnaire was distributed to and completed by 1 ICA member organisation in the country. The data collected was for the reference year 2016.


 

Summary

ICA members represent 212,135 cooperatives (148,220 active and 63915 inactive) in the country, with 37,783,160 members and 574,451 employees.

Cooperatives are present across diverse sectors in Indonesia including production, finance, service, among others.

 

Legal framework

 

The legal framework analysis aims to provide general knowledge of the national cooperative legislation and of its main characteristics and contents, with particular regard to those aspects of regulation regarding the identity of cooperatives and its distinction from other types of business organisations, notably the for-profit shareholder corporation.

It aims to evaluate whether the national legislation in place supports or hampers the development of cooperatives, and is, therefore “cooperative friendly” or not, and the degree to which it may be considered so, also in comparison to the legislation in force in other countries of the ICA region, or at the supranational level.

In addition, the research aims to provide recommendations for eventual renewal of the legal frameworks in place in order to understand what changes in the current legislation would be necessary to improve its degree of “cooperative friendliness”, which is to say, to make the legislation more favourable to cooperatives, also in consideration of their specific identity.
