Conference on “Social Faultlines in Indonesia: Persistence and Change in an Evolving Landscape”
Submission deadline: 31 March 2023

Indonesia has the fourth largest population in the world with a wide geographical variation. The country’s high diversity has been a critical element in the political, economic and socio-cultural life of the nation since its inception. But, the highly diverse populations are susceptible to increased polarisation and reduced social cohesion within Indonesian society. Social faultlines in Indonesia have various iterations, in terms of how they structure the national imaginary, as well as the political, economic and socio-cultural life of the nation.

Join us in an academic dialogue on multifaceted issues related to demographic diversity in Indonesia today. This conference takes into account the processes that lead to the persistence of social faultlines, how they are negotiated and managed, and how new faultlines emerge. Submit your abstracts now!
