Overview

It has been 10 years since Indonesia was transformed into to a democracy after more than three decades of dictatorship. Considering that it is the world�s largest Muslim-majority nation, Indonesia�s democratic transformation is quite a success story; in fact, Indonesia has shown us that�contrary to current debates�Islam and democracy can co-exist.

In retrospect, however, we must ask: What has Indonesia achieved? Is Indonesia more stable now, politically and economically? Has the Indonesian economy really recovered from the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997-98 and shown an increasingly positive growth rate? And are Indonesia�s legal, financial and social reforms working?

The Indonesian Journey is a collective attempt to answer these questions. With a reader-friendly structure, this book suits not only students of Southeast Asia studies and academics, but also leaders across sectors and anyone who is interested in Indonesia.
