About Us


Article 33 Indonesia is a research institution for social transformation in the form of association. The institution was previously called Pattiro Institute, then by July 2012 officially changed name to Article 33 Indonesia. This name change has been validated by Notarial Deed and recorded at the South Jakarta Public Court on October 3rd, 2012, with full legal name as “Perkumpulan Artikel 33 Indonesia”. In effect, all past activities conducted by the Pattiro Institute will proceed under Perkumpulan Artikel 33 Indonesia.

The name Article 33 Indonesia was sparked from a desire to uphold the noble ideals of article 33 of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, especially verse 3: “The earth and water and natural resources contained therein shall be controlled by the State and be utilized for the greatest prosperity of the people.” We consider those ideals represent our vision and mission:
