  • Under the leadership of Ambassador Dino Patti-Djalal, the Foreign Policy Community Indonesia (FPCI) has emerged not just as one the most influential voices for "positive internationalism" not just in Indonesia, but throughout the Indo-Pacific region and globally. Filled with the grass-roots dynamism of Indonesia's rising generation, their annual Conference on Indonesian Foreign Policy has become absolute "must attend" even on the calendar, the Dino Patti-Djalal School of Diplomacy trains and the SuperMentor programs inspires participants throughout the region. Perhaps more impressive still is now adaptive FPCI has proven to be in the COVID-19 era, sharing cutting edge research, analysis, and insights in new and excited ways.

  • The Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI)'s work to make policy debates understandable and accessible to people across sectors and generations is even more important today when foreign and domestic policy are inextricably intertwined. Whether on trade practices or regional security issues, kudos to the FPCI for encouraging cooperation, communications and community.

  • The Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) provides an environment for the exchanging of ideas— and promotes internationalism and Indonesia’s geopolitical potential from a policy point of view. That amongst the plethora of projects it commands, the FPCI provides a space for the intersectionality of public and private sector interests through its informative public forums and round tables. Their breadth of activities and sheer creativity and attention to detail for program-design is comprehensive. The work that comes out of FPCI is evidence-based and provides a sobering analysis of the world with the dose of idealism that comes out of FPCI and their vision for the world.

  • FPCI is more than just a run-of-the-mill think tank that formulates foreign policy analysis, it has turned into a major platform giving voices to our youths and expose them to wider horizons and diverse perspectives and that is what sets FPCI apart.

  • In a short period, the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) has managed to establish itself as the premier non-governmental foreign policy convener in Indonesia. Its young and energetic team has successfully and creatively been able to bring issues of international affairs to the public radar screen. Its flagship annual Conference on Indonesian Foreign Policy (CIFP) has become the largest festival of diplomacy in the country, rife with intellectually rich discourse.
    Mohamad Al-Arief
    Advisor to the World Bank Managing Director on Development Policy and Partnerships
  • With its annual mega conference on foreign policy issues FPCI has created an awareness among the Indonesian public that those issues are not the exclusive domain of the diplomats. The people especially young generation are also legitimate stakeholders. FPCI has managed to build a bridge, connecting foreign policy makers and its public constituents through presentations display dialogues and exchange of ideas. Let us hope that FPCI will continue to improve the quality of two-way interaction between foreign policy makers and the people they serve.

  • I see Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) as a critical venue for youth to learn prominent and strategic issues on the various aspects of policy. Thanks to the major, regular conferences, discussions, and workshops that FPCI organised, we can discuss and discover solutions with related stakeholders some of the most pressing issues our society faces, including sustainability and environmental issues. Now that the world is faced with a global health crisis and a global climate crisis, global and Indonesian leaders must find a way to address both emergencies simultaneously. WRI Indonesia commits to working with our partners, including FPCI, to advance such agenda.
