In response to major protests, Jokowi's administration has generated some controversies. On 22 May 2019, amid post-election riots by supporters of losing presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto, the government limited the speed at which photos and videos could be shared on social media to stop people from being incited by fake news and calls for violence.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2019/05/22/jakarta-riot-government-temporarily-limits-access-to-social-media-messaging-apps.html|title=Jakarta riot: Government temporarily limits access to social media, messaging apps|publisher=The Jakarta Post|author=Tehusijarana, Karina M.; Valentina, Jessicha|date=22 May 2019|access-date=3 March 2021|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20190524081309/https://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2019/05/22/jakarta-riot-government-temporarily-limits-access-to-social-media-messaging-apps.html|archive-date=24 May 2019}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-indonesia-election-socialmedia-idUKKCN1SS1MM|title=Indonesia curbs social media, blaming hoaxes for inflaming unrest|publisher=Reuters|author=Potkin, Fanny|date=22 May 2019|access-date=3 March 2021}}</ref> In the aftermath, [[Amnesty International]]'s Indonesian office denounced repressive measures against the demonstrators, condemned them as a grave human rights abuse and demanded the government investigate the extrajudicial executions in the clashes.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/asa21/0577/2019/en/|title=Indonesia: Open letter on torture or other ill-treatment by the police in the mass protest following the election result announcement of 21–23 May 2019 |publisher=Amnesty International|date=25 June 2019|access-date=9 October 2019}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=https://thediplomat.com/2019/09/is-indonesia-losing-its-war-on-corruption-under-jokowi/|title=Is Indonesia Losing Its War on Corruption Under Jokowi?|publisher=The Diplomat|author=Cook, Erin|date=20 September 2019|access-date=20 December 2020|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20190920233211/https://thediplomat.com/2019/09/is-indonesia-losing-its-war-on-corruption-under-jokowi/|archive-date=20 September 2019}}</ref> In August and September 2019, the government blocked internet access in Papua and West Papua provinces amid [[2019 Papua protests|violent protests]] against racism.

In 2017, Jokowi supported a controversial bill on mass organisations, which upon passing resulted in the disbandment of the Indonesian branch of [[Hizb ut-Tahrir]].

Jokowi aspires Indonesia to become a global maritime power ({{lang-id|poros maritim dunia}} or global maritime axis). He sees the sea as having an increasingly important role in Indonesia's future and that as a maritime country, Indonesia must assert itself as a force between the two oceans: the [[Indian Ocean]] and the [[Pacific Ocean]]. The five pillars of this maritime-axis doctrine are rebuilding Indonesia's maritime culture, maintaining and managing marine resources, developing maritime infrastructure and connectivity as well as developing the shipping industry and maritime tourism, inviting other nations to cooperate in the marine field and eliminate the source of conflicts at sea, and developing maritime defence forces.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/11/13/jokowi-launches-maritime-doctrine-world.html|title=Jokowi launches maritime doctrine to the world|publisher=The Jakarta Post|author=Witular, Rendi A.|date=13 November 2014|access-date=14 April 2016|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20141117041906/https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/11/13/jokowi-launches-maritime-doctrine-world.html|archive-date=17 November 2014}}</ref> As part of this vision, Jokowi has adopted a tougher stance on illegal fishing.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/indonesia-blows-up-and-sinks-another-81-fishing-boats-for-poaching|title=Indonesia blows up and sinks another 81 fishing boats for poaching|publisher=The Straits Times|author=Chan, Francis|date=2 April 2017|access-date=10 October 2018|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20170402081833/https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/indonesia-blows-up-and-sinks-another-81-fishing-boats-for-poaching|archive-date=2 April 2017}}</ref> He stated that Jakarta could no longer tolerate a situation where over 5,000 ships are operating illegally in its waters every day, making a mockery out of Indonesian sovereignty and resulting in annual losses of over $20 billion.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://thediplomat.com/2015/01/explaining-indonesias-sink-the-vessels-policy-under-jokowi/|title=Explaining Indonesia's 'Sink The Vessels' Policy Under Jokowi|publisher=The Diplomat|author=Parameswaran, Prashanth|date=13 January 2015|access-date=18 July 2015|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20150125034604/https://thediplomat.com/2015/01/explaining-indonesias-sink-the-vessels-policy-under-jokowi/|archive-date=25 January 2015}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=https://economy.okezone.com/read/2014/12/10/320/1077248/terapi-kejut-jokowi-bagi-pencuri-ikan-asing|title=Terapi Kejut Jokowi Bagi Pencuri Ikan Asing|publisher=Okezone|language=id|date=10 December 2014|access-date=15 April 2018|url-status=live|archive-url=https://web.archive.org/web/20150713052233/https://economy.okezone.com/read/2014/12/10/320/1077248/terapi-kejut-jokowi-bagi-pencuri-ikan-asing|archive-date=13 July 2015}}</ref>
