Gunawan Wiradi has long been an internationally known researcher on agrarian change, agrarian politics, and agrarian social science in Indonesia and a leading voice for agrarian reform. Among some communities of intellectuals and activists, his name is legendary, associated with rigorous, foundational, and ethical research and teaching. Perhaps more than anyone in or outside Indonesia, Gunawan Wiradi has focused his scholarly and activist attention on the continuing inequities in land distribution in Java. He has been committed to finding agrarian reform mechanism that will help the rural poor.

For more than four decades, Gunawan Wiradi has been at the forefront of efforts to bring about greater social and economic justice in Indonesia through agrarian reform. Through his incisive and courageous writings and practical engagements, he kept the flame and the promise of agrarian reform alive during an extremely repressive phase of Indonesia history. Just as he played a formative role for my generation of student, in the 1990s, Gunawan Wiradi was also a major source of inspiration for a new generation of younger scholars and activists, helping to reignite interest in agrarian reform.
Gillian Hart, Professor of Geography and Chair of Development Studies, University of California, Berkeley
I have known him for more than four decades and have always admired his endeavours to highlight a wide variety of agrarian issues both in his scholarly studies as well as in the public domain. His outstanding contribution in academic meetings (conference, workshop as well as class room teaching) are paralleled by his dedication to reach out to a wider audience which led him to share his scholarly expertise with the staff of NGOs. All these efforts have added to his widely acclaimed reputation as a public intellectual.
