While gender equality has been widely acknowledged as a key indicator for development, Indonesia has continued to see unsolved crisis concerning women. The concept of human security which posits human beings at the centre of the policy response is apparently inadequate. However, more than merely reconceptualizing the concept and substantively translating them into political actions, there is an urgency for meticulously rethinking the all-encompassing structure within which human security is executed.
