Sidney Jones and Crisis Group’s South East Asian analysts based in Jakarta prepare analytical reports on the sources of conflict and violence in the region, with a particular focus on Indonesia. She has examined separatist conflicts (Aceh and Papua, Mindanao); communal conflicts (Poso, Moluccas); and ethnic conflict (Kalimantan). Her team has also looked at Islamic radicalism, producing a series of reports on Jemaah Islamiyah and its operations in Indonesia and the Philippines. It also looks at issues of security sector reform and decentralisation in Indonesia. Sidney frequently briefs the media, international organisations, and government representatives on these issues.
