The Role of Civil Society Facing Radicalism in Indonesian Society
Indonesia is the world’s largest country with a Muslim majority, and has over the past two decades evolved into a democracy and one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies. However, the country has also experienced an increase in religious intolerance and a growing radicalism. In this seminar, a panel including representatives from some of the country's major Islamic civil society organizations will speak about the challenges ahead.
