Twentieth EDEM seminar: Explaining Collective Violence in Contemporary Indonesia

Category: research

15 Aug 2014

Mohammad ZulfanThis book uniquely examines four types of violent conflicts pertinent to contemporary Indonesia framed in a theoretical approach of grievance, greed and social contract. The overall process of democratization and decentralization has become a major force in catalysing the transformation of non-cooperative behaviours of secessionist and inter-ethnic violence to cooperative interactions of centre–regional relations and inter-ethnic political coalitions. Exploring secessionist, ethnic, routine-everyday and electoral violence conflict, the book seeks to discover what socio-economic development can do to overcome conflict and violence in Indonesia and make the country’s transition to democracy safe for its constituencies.
