Global Mondays Weekly Lecture Series - Global Spotlight on the Future of Democracy in Egypt: Comparative Insights from Indonesia

William H. Gates Hall
117
12:30 PM - 1:20 PM

“Looking at Post-Mubarak Egypt through a comparative glance at post-Suharto Indonesia”

Dr. Giora Eliraz, Research Associate, Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Affiliated Fellow at KITLV/Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies in Leiden, Netherlands.

Hosted by the International Law Society, UW Law Global Affairs, and the Southeast Asia Center at the Jackson School of International Studies

About two years and a half passed since the outset of the Arab Spring in Egypt and this country is still immersed in political turmoil. Hence, a comparative view at the case of Indonesia’s democracy seems useful for suggesting some significant insights for thinking on the future of democracy in Egypt that is covered now by thick fog. Indeed, Indonesia’s democracy still has some obvious shortcomings, but such comparative view also further illustrates the considerable, impressive distance that has been covered by Indonesia in its moving through a democratic path during the recent 15 years.

Dr. Giora Eliraz is the author of Islam in Indonesia: Modernism, Radicalism and the Middle East Dimension and the monograph, Islam and Polity in Indonesia: An Intriguing Case Study. He is a Research Associate at the Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Affiliated Fellow at KITLV/Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies in Leiden, Netherlands. Dr. Eliraz holds a PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and served as a Visiting Fellow at the Southeast Asia Centre, Faculty of Asian Studies at the Australian National University in Canberra.
