The architects of Indonesia’s new Dutch colonial government are two names. First is Herman Willem Daendels who was Governor General from 1808-1811 under the French occupation. The second name that stands out as the architect of the new Dutch colonial state in Indonesia is British Lieutenant Sir Stamford Raffles. He served as Governor-General between 1811-1816 during British occupation. Daendels was the one who reorganized the central and regional colonial administration by dividing Java into districts (also known as residencies), each one headed by an European civil servant – called the resident – who was directly subordinate – and had to report – to the Governor-General in Batavia 😁 These residents were responsible for a wide range of matters in their residencies, varying from legal matters to the organisation of agriculture 🙈 
These men have been often celebrated in the Netherlands as heroes. During the Dutch conquest in 1621 of Indonesia’s Banda Islands, under the command of VOC officer Jan Pieterszoon Coen (VOC), almost all the population was murdered by Dutch forces. Some Indonesians were sent to Batavia as slaves to be used in the Dutch conquest of Banda Islands. Coen’s expansion of Dutch power made him an icon in the Netherlands throughout the 1800s. A statue was built in Coen’s hometown of Hoorn in 1893. The statue was unveiled at the hands of Baron van Dedem (the Dutch minister for the colonies).

Sukarno took bold measures in foreign policy which shocked Western capitals. In Indonesia, the government of Sukarno pulled out from the UN and Olympic games. They declared them to be controlled by imperialism. The country also started to create rival international organisations. Just as the right-wing coup was about to take place, Djakarta hosted a conference on foreign military bases. It was directed primarily at the U.S., with its 3000 installations in other countries.
