Minister: 'Indonesia not a failed state' JAKARTA - National Development Planning Minister Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana denied on Monday that Indonesia was a failed state, saying the country was making progress. "We are not a failed state because we are improving. By scoring 80.6 points in a recent survey, we are moving closer to a moderate level," she told a press conference here.

The Washington-based Fund for Peace recently published the 2012 Failed State Index (FSI), in which Indonesia ranked 63 out of the 178 countries surveyed worldwide. Last year, Indonesia was in the 64th spot among 177 countries. Somalia topped the list of failed states, followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"The survey conducted by the non-profit organization suggests that Indonesia continues to make progress, so it is not on the threshold of being a failed state," Armida said. "Based on the same survey, Indonesia has made significant progress in the past three years," she added.

"So I reject the statement that Indonesia is a failed state. It is not true that we are a failed state. In 2010, we were ranked 61 by scoring 83.1 points. We were in the 64th spot in 2011 and then went up to 63 in 2012 by scoring 80.6," Armida noted.

Even the results of the survey concluded that Indonesia`s economic performance had improved, she said. "From the 12 indicators of the survey, six showed improvements, four remained unchanged or stagnant, and two worsened," Armida stated.

"The 12 development indicators used in the survey are actually part of the Indonesian government`s 2010-14 medium-term national development planning, as well as of the 2013 work plan," she added.

For me it would be interesting what the Fund for Peace movement means with "failed state": politically, economically, socially, sociologically, culturally, religiously.......

Allright, then these are the indicators:
Social
Mounting demographic pressures.
Massive displacement of refugees, creating severe humanitarian emergencies.
Widespread vengeance-seeking group grievance.
Chronic and sustained human flight.
Slum creation in poor areas.
Economic
Uneven economic development along group lines.
Severe economic decline.
Political
Criminalization and/or delegitimization of the state.
Deterioration of public services.
Suspension or arbitrary application of law; widespread human rights abuses.
Security apparatus operating as a "state within a state".
Rise of factionalized elites.
Intervention of external political agents.

Well, there are some indicators, but actually not that much.
* Widespread vengeance-seeking group grievance. The muslim extremists??
* Slum creation in poor areas. Mwahhh......not that worse.
* Uneven economic development along group lines. Well, that's everywhere on the planet.
* Suspension or arbitrary application of law; widespread human rights abuses. There are some human right abuses, but not widespread.
* Security apparatus operating as a "state within a state". In a certain way, but not yet out of control.
* Rise of factionalized elites. Not really a rise; it's always been there.

According to my opinion the country is far from a failed state; it ranks negative on 63 of 177 states.
