Please join us for Brown Bag Session titled: "Within Linking Belief to Collective Action: Ambiguity and Paradox the application of Syariah Law in Aceh"

The adoption of Syariah Law in Aceh is often seen as a key element in finding a resolution to the conflict between GAM (Free Aceh Movement) and the Government of Indonesia. However, while the elites of the movement openly claim that their goal of rebellion is not about Islam/Syariah, the rank-and-file members of the movement are largely motivated by the issue of Syariah.

Mohammad Hasan Ansori is a Ford Foundation Degree Fellow with the East-West Center. He successfully defended his dissertation titled "Between Self-Interested and Socio-Psychological Motivations: the Complexity and Dynamic of Ethnic Conflict Decision in Indonesia"  in the Department of Sociology at the University of Hawai'i in Spring 2011.
