Marginalisation and Human Rights in Southeast Asia

This book analyses marginalisation and human rights in Southeast Asia and offers diverse approaches in understanding the nuances of marginalisation and human rights in the region.

Throughout the region, a whole range of similarities and differences can be observed relating to the Southeast Asian experience of human rights violation, with each country maintaining particular aspects reflecting the variability of the use and abuse of political power. This book explores the distinct links between marginalisation and human rights for groups exposed to discrimination. It focuses on ethnic minorities, children, indigenous peoples, migrant workers, refugees, academics, and people with disabilities. This book highlights the disparities in attainment and opportunity of marginalised and minority groups in Southeast Asia to their rights. It examines how marginalisation is experienced, with case studies ranging from a regional approach to country context. Paying attention to how broader socio-economic and political structures affect different people’s access to, or denial of, their fundamental human rights and freedoms, the book argues that tackling human rights abuses remains a major hurdle for the countries in Southeast Asia.

Providing a broader conceptual framework on marginalisation and human rights in Southeast Asia and a new assessment of these issues, this book will be of interest to readers in the fields of Asian Law, Human Rights in Asia, and Southeast Asian Studies, in particular Southeast Asian Politics.

Islam, Hak Beragama dan Dinamikanya di Indonesia

Although constitutionally speaking, freedom of religion and belief is guaranteed by the state in article 29 of the 1945 Constitution. In addition, the Indonesian government has also shown its commitment to human rights by ratifying two international human rights instruments, namely the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESPR). However, in reality the implementation of the 1945 Constitution and the implementation of these two international instruments still need to be questioned. This book contains six articles that discuss freedom of religion and belief both theoretically and in reality in the field. The writings of these six authors enrich the readers’ repertoire of what is happening in Indonesia regarding freedom of religion and belief in Indonesia.

Religious Minorities, Islam and the Law International Human Rights and Islamic Law in Indonesia

This book examines the legal conundrum of reconciling international human rights law in a Muslim majority country and identifies a trajectory for negotiating the protection of religious minorities within Islam.
The work explores the history of religious minorities within Islam in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim population, as well as the present-day ways by which the government may address issues through reconciling international human rights law and Islamic law. Given the context of multiple sets of religious norms in Indonesia, this is a complicated endeavour. In addition to amending and enacting human rights norms, the government is also negotiating with the long history of Islamisation in Indonesia. Particularly relevant is the practice of customary law, which puts the rights of community over individualism. This practice directly affects the rights of religious minorities within Islam. Readers, especially those conducting research, will also be provided with information and references which are relevant to the field of human rights, especially in relation to religious minorities and international law.
The book will be a valuable resource for academics and researchers in the fields of International Human Rights Law, Law and Religion, and Islamic Studies.
