Talking Indonesia: is Indonesia an unusual Muslim country?

Is Indonesia an unusual Muslim country? Do Indonesian Muslims see Islam in the country as distinct, or see Indonesia as overall different to other Muslim countries? And do Indonesian Muslims’ beliefs about Islam affect their political and economic behaviour?


In this Talking Indonesia episode I speak to Associate Professor Tom Pepinsky, Cornell, who is writing a book with R. William Liddle and Saiful Mujani about these questions.


Look out for a new Talking Indonesia interview every fortnight. Listen to previous episodes with Dr Philips VermonteDr Evi Fitriani, Dr Muhamad Najib Azca and Dr Ken Setiawan.
