This paper assesses the progress and challenges of peace agreement between the government of Indonesia and the Free Aceh Movement after the enactment of the Law on Aceh Government (LAG) 11/2006, particularly on the vulnerability status of MoU both in the national and international legal systems. The normative approach was used and data from local, national and international sources were analyzed to describe the recent implementation of MoU. Findings confirm that after 11 years, security in terms of the political aspect has been demonstrated, while economic and human rights-related issues remain unaddressed. Therefore, this paper argues that the legalization of MoU in international procedural system will ensure the compliance of agreement and strengthen sustainable peace in the Aceh-Indonesia context.
