International Seminar on:


“Interpreting 70 Years of Indonesian Independence amidst Global Changes

in Historical Perspective”

August 20-22, 2015

Faculty of Humanities

University of Indonesia


Organized by:

The Study Program of History (History Department, Undergraduate Program), Faculty of Humanities, University of Indonesia


A. Background:


"Indonesians endorse a sense of peace; however, they often choose freedom rather than imposing peace." This popular idea has been instigated throughout the historical development in Indonesia. For Indonesians, a peaceful life is marked by a sense of feeling secure and a realization of prosperity. "Aman Sentosa" is an Indonesian phrase, which means feeling secure and prosperous. The question remains: has Indonesia already achieved this state of security after 70 years of Independence?

How do we ponder these 70 years of independence in accordance with human and cultural development? How to utilize the past wisdom to respond to the challenges that emerge either as a consequence of changes in the geopolitical strategic environment or due to climate changes which have caused a number of disasters?

Those are issues and problems that will be examined in the seminar as we interpret 70 years of Indonesian independence amidst the global changes through a historical perspective while implementing multi-disciplinary approaches.

Lecturers, Students, Researchers and Individuals who are interested in Indonesian Independence History and Decolonization in Southeast Asia
