The ISEA (Islam in Southeast Asia: Dynamics of Transnational Network and Local Contexts) primarily aims to demonstrate the inherent nature of Islam in Southeast Asia, which is becoming more and more socially influential in local contexts, and to examine the effect of transnational Islamic revival, which originated in the Middle East, Islamism, and other related trends in local culture and society in the concerned areas, that is, their two-dimensional (local and translational) relationship and dynamics. Further, detailed explanation is intended about the possible influence of such local and transnational dynamics on the public domain in a wide sense including politics, economy, conflicts, peace building, and so forth, through collaboration of researchers and persons practically involved in multiple fields (history anthropology, political science, international relations, jurisprudence, religious studies, and so on) including specialists in Middle Eastern affairs. Influence exerted by transnational Islamic revival, Islamism, and other related trends on local culture and society in the concerned areas.
