Doing research at the Indonesian parliament (DPR)

A few suggestions for those doing research at the Indonesian parliament (DPR):

– use BBM to stay in touch with people. Meetings get arranged (and canceled) shortnotice and as you go along.

– Email is not a reliable mode of communication. Be prepared to call and/or meet people in person.

– almost nothing works without an introduction or referral.

– do not wait for people to get you stuff or fill out surveys when you are not around. Stay there, be around, help and be patient.
