Australia-Indonesia Attitudes and Understanding Research: Qualitative research of contemporary attitudes and interventions
The ‘Australia-Indonesia Attitudes & Understanding Research: Qualitative research of contemporary attitudes and interventions’ study was conducted by Monash researchers Dr RoseAnne Misajon, Dr Howard Manns, Dr Ana-Maria Bliuc, and Muhammad Iqbal.
In the first part of the study, the researchers adapted a text analysis tool to examine differences between Australian and Indonesian newspapers in how the outlets reported events relevant to both nations.
In the second part, the researchers conducted a series of focus groups in both nations to collect qualitative data in order to establish a baseline understanding of the Australian-Indonesian relationship.
Dr Misajon, Dr Manns and Mr Iqbal presented findings at the Australia-Indonesia Attitudes Seminar in May 2016, and delivered the final report in August 2016.
