Abstract

This paper first examines the conditions which enabled developments in the social and political activism of the Indonesian Chinese to take place since 1998, by looking at the role of the government, the work of non-state institutions, and the Chinese themselves. The paper then investigates the major challenges to this progress. These include problems within the government, growing cases of intolerance, and persistent stereotyping. All of these have changed over the last fifteen years.
