The role of domestic interest groups is crucial in determining a country’s position and its interest in international trade negotiations. This research mainly focuses on analysing the role of major domestic interest groups related to agricultural sector in Indonesia and how they articulate their interests. This research principally aims at answering the following questions: what are the role and the position taken by the Indonesian government in Agreement on Agriculture (AoA) negotiations during the Doha Round? What strategies have been implemented by the Indonesian government to achieve its interests during the negotiations? Does the Indonesian government’s position in negotiations reflect the interests of its major domestic interest groups? To answer these questions, the data for this research is gathered through documentary evidence particularly official documents published by WTO and the Indonesian government, as well as domestic interests groups’ reports and publications. In addition, in-depth interviews with the representatives of domestic interest groups and government officials are also conducted to gain more comprehensive information.
