Jaringan Islam Liberal (JIL) is a network whose members claim themselves to be proponents of liberal Islam in Indonesia. The term liberal Islam means a critical understanding of Islamic teachings based on the essential meaning of the text by going beyond the literal meaning of the text because the text does not exhaust all meanings of revelation. In order to achieve this, JIL considers the fruits of modernity such as democratization, the idea of progress, secularization, human rights, religious freedom and pluralism and so forth as important in interpretation. Various responses have been addressed to JIL. The responses can be seen as questioning the validity of its concerns, its authority as a proponent of liberal Islam and the relationship between JIL and Indonesian society as its audience. This work also concentrates on all of these response types, either positive or negative, to JIL s views on religious freedom and pluralism.
Public relations is often regarded as a female field. In Indonesia, women have entered PR in conventionally male-dominated fields. Women predominate in its teaching, and many are setting up their own agencies. In Indonesia, PR is a developing field where it seems that gender equity has become a reality. But has it really? This book analyzes the impacts of the feminization of PR, and whether this is benefiting women practitioners and the overall industry in Indonesia. Based on in-depth interviews with 53 PR practitioners and educators in Jakarta, and a mailing list discussion, this book analyzes factors of the glass ceiling and role congruity theories from radical feminist and liberal feminist perspectives. This analysis helps build a feminist theory of PR by demonstrating the importance of the organizational environment to the influence of PR practitioners, both male and female. On a practical level, this book went beyond the simple claim that gender discrepancies exist, and instead gave explanations and potential solutions to problems. Feminist communication scholars, PR practitioners and students will find this book especially useful.
New York Times bestseller"A cogent analysis of the concurrent Trump/Brexit phenomena and a dire warning about what lies ahead...a lucid, provocative book." --Kirkus ReviewsThose who championed globalization once promised a world of winners, one in which free trade would lift all the world's boats, and extremes of left and right would give way to universally embraced liberal values. The past few years have shattered this fantasy, as those who've paid the price for globalism's gains have turned to populist and nationalist politicians to express fury at the political, media, and corporate elites they blame for their losses.The United States elected an anti-immigration, protectionist president who promised to "put America first" and turned a cold eye on alliances and treaties. Across Europe, anti-establishment political parties made gains not seen in decades. The United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.And as Ian Bremmer shows in this eye-opening book, populism is still spreading. Globalism creates plenty of both winners and losers, and those who've missed out want to set things right. They've seen their futures made obsolete. They hear new voices and see new faces all about them. They feel their cultures shift. They don't trust what they read. They've begun to understand the world as a battle for the future that pits "us" vs. "them."Bremmer points to the next wave of global populism, one that hits emerging nations before they have fully emerged. As in Europe and America, citizens want security and prosperity, and they're becoming increasingly frustrated with governments that aren't capable of providing them. To protect themselves, many government will build walls, both digital and physical. For instance...In Brazil and other fast-developing countries, civilians riot when higher expectations for better government aren't being met--the downside of their own success in lifting millions from poverty.In Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt and other emerging states, frustration with government is on the rise and political battle lines are being drawn.In China, where awareness of inequality is on the rise, the state is building a system to use the data that citizens generate to contain future demand for changeIn India, the tools now used to provide essential services for people who've never had them can one day be used to tighten the ruling party's grip on power.When human beings feel threatened, we identify the danger and look for allies. We use the enemy, real or imagined, to rally friends to our side. This book is about the ways in which people will define these threats as fights for survival. It's about the walls governments will build to protect insiders from outsiders and the state from its people.And it's about what we can do about it.
Although contemporary art in Indonesia is completely integrated within the global art discourse , the fundamental context of Indonesian artists is in fact quite different from that of the contemporary Western artistic practice , in which notions of individuality and ‘autonomy’ play a key role. This perspective , at least in its current manifestation , is based on a neo-liberal worldview focused more or less entirely on the pursuit of individual success.
September 11, vitriolic rhetoric against the United States by prominent Muslims, the war against terrorism shifts from Afghanistan to the Philippines and Indonesia. It is easy to believe Islam and Muslims are enemies of the West, it is also wrong. This sweeping survey of trends in the Muslim world contends that the issue is not whether Islam plays a central role in politics, but what Muslims want. To focus on radicalism and extremism blinds us from another trend: liberal political Islam. Proponents of liberal political Islam emphasize human rights and democracy, tolerance and cooperation. They face an uphill struggle as authoritarian regimes oppress opposition and use Islam to justify their undemocratic rule. As people are denied avenues to participate and criticize, as secular ideologies have failed, religion has come to play a central role in politics. The outcome of the struggle between extremists and liberals will determine the future of political Islam.
Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Macro-economics, general, grade: Keine, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, language: English, abstract: The world is changing rapidly. In the last sixty years it has seen miraculous developments. Coming out of the ashes of World War II, Western Europe has established itself as the most stable region of the world. Totally destroyed Japan, having been the victim of the only atomic bomb in human history, which killed hundreds of thousands, has established itself as the strongest economy of Asia, and second only to the United States worldwide. We have seen the rise of South Korea, which had the equal per capita income as Mozambique in late fifties. Today South Korea stands as a developed country. We have seen the growth of China when Mao went. From Deng Xiaoping to Xiang Jemin to Hu Jintao, it kept its economy open and recently overtook Germany as the third largest economy of the world. China is on the way to become the second largest economy. India, from the early ninetees, took similar policy. India grew when the world economy was in downturn. The rise of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries has re-shaped the world order. Mexico proudly declares itself as a North American country today and no more intends to turn back to its old identity as a Central American country. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been good for Mexican economy as they can sell their products in the United States and Canada now. Indonesia shares similar story. Even though it was runned by one of the terrible dictator of the world, Suharto, he brought liberal policies in the country encouraging Privatisation, Free Trade and more market liberalization. After the Asian financial crisis of 1997, people lost faith in him and finally toppled him. Growth was felt in other parts of the world as well. Emergence of computarized technologies, World Wide Web, digital technologies etc have reshaped the world. Nepal, however, did not change much. Even though it enjoyed the modern developments from other parts of the world, it could not establish itself as a country capable to adopt such changes. There are many things to blame. Ill adviced policies of the past, weak justice system, ineffective education policies, high corruption, nepotism etc are just handful of things. In this paper, I will point out some sectors which need immediate change in Nepal. I will recommend some policy advices and finally analyse some future scenarios in international level which have huge impact on Nepalese economics and politics.
