Challenging the Secular State

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter traces the discourse between the nationalist groups and the Islamic groups on the formation of the Indonesian state in the important meetings of the Investigatory Committee for the Independence of Indonesia (BPUPKI) and the Preparatory Committee for the Independence of Indonesia (PPKI) in the early days of the new Republic of Indonesia in 1945. It emphasizes the concepts of the unitary state and the so-called fragmentary state, positing that there has been an ongoing contest between efforts to implement the unitary state ideal and attempts to turn Indonesia into a fragmentary state since the first years of Indonesia's independence.

Keywords:   unitary state, fragmentary state, Indonesian state, Republic of Indonesia, Investigatory Committee for the Independence of Indonesia, Preparatory Committee for the Independence of Indonesia
