This study is in two parts. Part 1 provides an overview of the national framework for fisheries, looks at the design of Indonesia’s fisheries human rights certification system and identifies challenges in its implementation.

Part 2 draws on the literature review and qualitative research from Part 1 to contextualize Indonesia’s fisheries human rights certification system as a private compliance initiative (PCI) within broader industry efforts to set voluntary standards to improve labour conditions and examines its relationship with the public labour inspectorate, which also aims to protect workers. It then provides recommendations to the Government of Indonesia and other social partners to strengthen the enforcement of labour standards and human rights protection for fishers and other workers in Indonesia’s fishing and seafood industry.
