Event Navigation

Since the end of the New Order, Indonesia has undergone a liberal shift. This shift resulted in ending Pancasila as the dominant ideology. Yet, liberalism is considered by many to have failed to take root in Indonesian society. By reading through works written by Indonesian intellectuals on the ideological position of Post-New Order Indonesian society, the research attempts to search for preliminary answers by both mapping the debates and looking for legacies of the ideas of the 1950s, when Indonesia was in its first liberal experiment. How we should contextualize Indonesia’s current liberal experiment in a historical manner is the question explored by the research.

Farabi Fakih is a lecturer in history at the Faculty of Cultural Sciences, Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta. He has obtained a PhD degree in history from Leiden University in May 2014.
