Terrorism and counterterrorism have become high priorities in Indonesia. Several bomb explosions since the fall of New Order government in 1998 until the J.W. Marriott and Ritz - Carlton hotels on July 17, 2009 such as Christmas Eve bombing, Bali bombing, Australian Embassy and J.W.Marriot bombing demonstrates that terrorism is a continuous threat. This paper discusses the counterterrorism measures taking by the Indonesian government to deal the problem. The aim of this study is: to verify support given by ASEAN Countries to fight terrorism in Indonesia. To get the specific information and data, the writer uses two kinds of research methods which are field research (observation, data collection, data analysis) and library Research. The writer used this method by reading and taking sources from books found in the library and looking for the other material that have relationship with this observation. The result of study describes counterterrorism cooperation between ASEAN and Indonesia, such as intelligence sharing, joint training of law enforcement, and efforts to standardize legal definitions of terrorism. ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and its member countries have been addressing the issue of terrorism at the national, bilateral and multilateral basis over the years. The ASEAN Leaders viewed terrorism as a profound threat to international peace and security and "a direct challenge to the attainment of peace, progress and prosperity of ASEAN and the realization of ASEAN Vision 2020". Furthermore, this paper seeks to plot the trajectory of ASEAN-Indonesia counterterrorism cooperation from the Bali bombing of October 2002 through the J.W.Marriott and Ritz Carlton Hotels of July 2009.
