An article in the Jakarta Post on KITLV’s research project ‘From Clients to Citizens? Emerging Citizenship in Democratising Indonesia‘, coordinated by Gerry van Klinken and Ward Berenschot: ‘Observations on Indonesia’s changing democracy‘.
The project tries to capture Indonesia’s changing democracy with seven sub-studies: citizenship, birth rights, village leadership, land rights and conflicts, Islam and social media. The project is a collaboration between KITLV, Gadjah Mada University, the University of Amsterdam and Leiden University and was initiated by Henk Schulte Nordholt (KITLV/Leiden University) and funded by The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Indonesian Culture and Education Ministry.
