Gustika Jusuf is an early-career researcher, activist, feminist, podcaster, public speaker, and occasional writer based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Like many millennials, it is not easy to put Gustika into a single box. Gustika currently works at IMPARSIAL (The Indonesian Human Rights Monitor), where her research encompasses the security sector reform policy, conflict, and human rights violations in Indonesia. Gustika is passionate about the intersectionality between gender, the military, statehood, and decolonization. Gustika had recently co-founded Girl, Peace, and Security–named as an hommage to UNSCR 1325–a learning initiative that aims to spark the interest of young women and girls in the defense and security sector, hoping to break from the masculine stigma attached to the field in Indonesia. Presently, Gustika is also involved as a National Consultant in the implementation of the Asian Development Bank’s JobStart pilot project in Indonesia. Gustika earned her Bachelor of Art in War Studies from King’s College London and wrote her dissertation on Indonesian women in peacekeeping. Over the same summer, her essay on the formation of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the United States post-world wars was selected for the LSE Centre for Women, Peace, and Security Conference. Some of Gustika’s writings in English can be found in The Jakarta Post and her personal blog on Medium. Prior to her current endeavors, Gustika interned at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Jakarta. Simultaneously, she also fulfilled a role as Youth Advisor to United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Indonesia.
