In 2008, our laboratory started a collaboration with Metro TV to produce a limited series called “Sosok Pemimpin”. The series itself was to analyse the traits and personalities between presidential candidates. The series was made accordingly with the preparation of 2009 Indonesia’s General Election.
In each episodes, “Sosok Pemimpin” deeply go through the personal and political life of 2009 presidential candidates. The candidates were between;
- Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono – Boediono
- Megawati Soekarnoputri – Prabowo Subianto
- Jusuf Kalla – Wiranto
“Sosok Pemimpin” analyse each pairs individually and also compares the strengths and weaknesses in terms of personal and political backgrounds, leadership styles, communications, and proven track records.
With the succesful collaboration of the program, our laboratory could get in touch with a lot of government ageny thus started a lot of project collaboration with the government. One of the example of the programs was to make psychological profile and assessment towards terrorist suspect and access to studies in radicalization and terrorism.
