SEMINAR: Asian Studies Seminar
|Asian Studies Seminar : Transnational Islam Globally and in Indonesia
To understand the importance of the impact of transnational Islam on peacebuilding and the narratives and activities of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) branch in Papua, it is necessary to locate the discussion within the literature. This presentation discusses the concepts of transnationalism, transnational religion, and transnational Islam, followed by an analysis of transnational Islam globally and in Indonesia. HTI in Indonesia should receive particular attention as an entry point to discussing HTI in
Papua. This paper is part of my doctoral research, entitled ‘Transnational Islam and Peacebuilding in Papua, Indonesia: A Study of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia’.
This study is focused on the transnational Islamic movement in Papua, Indonesia. It will explore the presence and development of transnational Islam, in particular, narratives (emergence, organisation and ideology) and activities of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI). This research will examine the presence of transnational Islamic
movements in Papua that have heightened tensions and conflicts between Muslims and Christian communities and how these communities view the impact of these
movements on communal harmony and peacebuilding.
