This paper attempts to map out the existing literature on the post-1999 political landscape at the local level. This literature review is made up by five key questions: (1) How is localising of power in Indonesia understood?; (2) How does power operate at local levels?; (3) What are the forces that shape Indonesian local politics?; (4) What are the prominent manifestations in Indonesian local politics?; (5) What are alternative political forces that possibly represent the setting up of the street demonstrations?; (6) What is the type of democratic governance format explored in the existing literature?
