Many liberal theorists believe democracy would become a strong force behind state's actions and policies. Therefore, this writing will discuss the extent to which democracy has influenced Indonesia's policy on Rohingya case. Some scholars argue that Rohingya case has de-legitimized Indonesia's democracy since Indonesia is consistently quite and giving reluctant response towards the issue. However, this writing argues the opposite, that although regional constraints remain, Indonesia has involved and applied consistent and comprehensive strategies to deal with the problem. Democratic values have successfully become force compelling Indonesian government to act in the name of human rights and democracy.
