About the Project

Project term: April, 2017–March, 2020

The general goal of this project is to conduct comparative field research on the dynamics of conflicts and peaceful co-existence in inter- and intra- religious/ethnic relationships in various Southeast Asian countries. In some countries in Southeast Asia, several examples of ethno- and, religious conflicts have involved both Muslim and non-Muslim populations, such as the conflict in the southern Philippines, where the Muslim minority has fought for independence or substantial autonomy for several decades. On the other end of the spectrum, there is relatively stable and peaceful co-existence of different ethnic or religious groupes in Malaysia and Singapore. In this study, we would like to re-examine the socio-historical backgrounds and political conditions leading to these differing outcomes of inter- (and/or intra-) ethno-religious contacts from a comparative perspective. For this purpose, we will invite researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, such as anthropology, history, political science, area studies, and Islamic studies, to contribute to the study. We will organize various workshops and/or conferences in the Kota Kinabalu Liaison Office (KKLO) in Malaysia, an international research office of ILCAA. This is a continuing project (the 3rd term) of the 2014-2016 “Multi-disciplinary Study on Islam and Cultural Diversity in Southeast Asia (The Second Term)”.
