Implementation History

2005

Intermediate Implementation

A Joint Council comprising the most senior representatives of the GOI, GAM, and the third party (HDC) was established in 2000. This was a council of experts on Aceh and they met on a daily basis.1

The Joint Council continued to exist after the parties signed the MoU in 2005. However, it is not clear how often the Joint Council met after the accord was signed and whether the Joint Council resolved any disputed issues.
