Panel Discussion on Islam, Democracy, and Indonesian Identity

You are invited to the panel discussion on Islam, Democracy, and Indonesian Identity on Thursday 6 December 2018 9.00 am – 12.00 pm followed by lunch at Erasmus Huis.

Indonesia is the world’s third largest democracy, and has the world’s largest Muslim population. While violent conflicts and extremism are plaguing many countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Indonesia’s experience presents hope that a Muslim majority country can be a strong and stable democracy.

But will it endure? Questions are raised as the 2019 Elections are drawing near. Recent imageries from Indonesia have challenged the peaceful and tolerant face that Indonesian Islam has been known for. Recent surveys show that religiously intolerant and radical ideas have run deep among the young generation.

We invite you to join the discussion on the national and international challenges regarding Islam, Democracy and Indonesian Identity with our outstanding panelists, who will bring their perspectives.

Free of Charge. RSVP: mark.spijker@minbuza.nl
