This paper aims to analyse institutional changes in the Indonesian industrial relations system. Although mainly focuses on the labour reforms in the Post-Soeharto era, this paper extends the time line to incorporate changes in the Old and New Order periods in analysing change and stability. In addition to the portrait of the institutional changes, this paper also analyses the roles of different actors in the periods of change. While acknowledging some significant changes in the institutional logics, the paper also discovers the evidence of institutional stability across times and periods of Indonesian government. It concludes the current changes in the Indonesian IR context has resulted in some unexpected results. This case demonstrates that there is a mismatch of different institutional elements within the Indonesian IR system that impedes successful changes.
