Nusantara School of Difference : Summer School 2019
Understanding Minority/Majority Relations: Lessons from the Indonesian Archipelago – July 27-August 10, 2019
West Java and East Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia.
As an archipelago, Indonesia has long struggled both to defend its unity as well as to advance its founding principle of “Bhineka Tunggal Ika” (Unity in Diversity), which is represented on the Garuda Pancasila (national emblem) and articulated in the Pancasila (Five Principles). The current challenges to such unity in diversity come from heightened tensions between the country’s different politicalreligious identities, and diverse nationalist groupings. In this year’s Nusantara School of Difference (NSD), we will experience (and learn) how majority and minority relations work themselves out in several different islands and locations within the archipelago. Minority/majority relations in theIndonesian context are best understood as fluid and as providing a continual point of contestation within the political arena and society at large. They have often been the cause of great tension and even violence between citizens. More information
