What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The presence of civic space in Indonesia to safeguard democratic governance is getting smaller. The existence of several facts indicates this: 1. There is the criminalization of civilians who exercise their right to information and critical expressions of civil society for a public policy. 2. The lack of personal data protection and personal security for civil society who exercise the right to information and expression. 3. There is excessive and arbitrary use of force and authority to the right to assemble and organise. In this case, it is necessary to strengthen understanding regarding restorative justice. Restorative justice, which is a theory, has been implemented through various government policies and programs, such as the Juvenile Criminal Justice System (Sistem Peradilan Pidana Anak - SPPA). However, there is no policy for a restorative justice in cases related to the right to information, the right to organize, the right to express opinions and the right to assemble. What is the commitment? Ensuring the presence of civic space in the roadmap of restorative justice. How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem? This commitment supports the realisation of a more transparent restorative justice so that the community can obtain their rights in every judicial process. 68 Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This commitment will support the Open Government values, namely participation. Why is this commitment relevant to Indonesian Medium-Term National Development Plan (RPJMN) and SDGs? This commitment will support the 16th SDGs Goal, namely Strengthening an Inclusive and Peaceful Society for Sustainable Development, Providing Access to Justice for All, and Building Effective, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions at All Levels and especially target 16.3 namely promoting the rule of law at the national level and internationally and ensure equal access to justice for all. In addition, this commitment is in accordance with the 2020-2024 RPJMN, page 272, regarding increasing access to justice.
