Indonesian President Joko Widodo has called for a quick and peaceful solution to one of the world's largest refugee crises unfolding in Bangladesh and Myanmar.
As monsoon season begins in Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees are working with humanitarian agencies to fortify the flood-prone terrain where they have taken refuge. Diego Cupolo reports from Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.
More than 190 million Indonesian voters have been to the polls for an election that will test the country's democracy. The two presidential candidates have similar ideas, but very different leadership styles.
The election campaign for Indonesia's next president has been dominated by the role of political Islam. Experts say the young voters, who comprise a big chunk of the electorate, are in support of conservative Islam.
Joko Widodo is on his way to a second term as Indonesia's president. Now, with little to lose politically, he should address human rights issues that he has been ignoring since 2014, says DW's Vidi Legowo-Zipperer.
