Esterina Dwi Cahyani Gaghana


Esterina first laid the ground of her vast knowledge of legal and politics fields when she studied law at the Gadjah Mada University. With passion on politics and public policy, she pursued further education by taking her master’s degree in public policy—where she graduated with a thesis analysing policy making in Indonesia during the global pandemic. Her keen interests, as well as knowledge and experience, has become a treasured addition to the Kiroyan Partners’ team.


After obtaining her bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Law, Gadjah Mada University, Esterina took her knowledge into practice by starting a career as campaign coordinator during the 2017 regional elections. She gained invaluable experience not only in politics but also in project management while she practiced her political communication and negotiation skills.

She then decided to sharpen her by pursuing her masters’ degree in public policy at the Queen Mary University of London, UK, where she also made use of her time to widen her experience by being heavily involved in various organisations. She contributed her time and knowledge, while also added experience, at the Asian Law Student’s Association (ALSA) and Indonesia Student Association in London.

She has also interned at the Executive Office of The President Republic of Indonesia, where she became more accustomed to the working experience and gained network in various levels of government. Ester was working as Policy Researcher for Civil 20 Indonesia when she decided to join Kiroyan Partners.
