Eropanisasi ‘Eksternal’ dalam Kebijakan Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu (SVLK) di Indonesia

Andi Akhmad Basith


The establishment of Indonesian timber verification system, which was started by VPA negotiations in 2007, is followed by the signing and ratification of the agreement leading to the inception of a national timber regime thereafter. It can be seen as a positive effort in tackling illegal trade in timber and illegal logging in Indonesia. Nevertheless, the study about the creation of Indonesian timber regime should not be separated from the role of the European Union (EU) as the actor contributes greatly in introducing and developing the regime in Indonesia. From a unique standpoint, the establishment of the regime in Indonesia can be seen as EU’s success in bringing and implementing EU’s timber standards to the outward area, which is in essence, not within its sovereign territory and legal jurisdiction. This study aims to assess the extent to which the EU is involved in influencing and affecting the creation of Indonesian timber regulation of SVLK in Indonesia.
