United States-Indonesia Society: “The Interplay of Religion and Politics in Indonesia: What Does Jakarta’s Gubernatorial Election Signify?”

On July 25, USINDO held a Special Open Forum on the “The Interplay of Religion and Politics in Indonesia: What Does Jakarta’s Gubernatorial Election Signify?”. The discussion focused on the recent election for governor of Jakarta, and the subsequent trial and imprisonment of one of the leading candidates, Ahok, a Chinese Christian Indonesian.  

The forum featured presentations by Professor Thomas Pepinsky of Cornell University and Professor Jeremy Menchik of Boston University.
