Citizenship, indigenous religions and conservative Islam: the KTP case and its effects

Research Team:
Dr Zainal Abidin Bagir, Dr Simon Butt
Research summary:

This research focuses on the KTP case, handed down by the Constitutional Court in late 2017. In it, the Court decided that citizens were not required to select one of the religions recognised by the state – Islam, Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Buddhism or Confucianism – to fill in the religion column on their identity cards (KTP). Rather, they could choose to nominate another belief – including an indigenous religion. This study seeks to assess the impact of this decision and its contribution to debates about the position of religion in the Indonesian state.
