The Politics and Cultures of Islamic Education in Southeast Asia
This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to shed light on the varieties and politics of Islamic education in modern Southeast Asia. The contributors aim to provide a sense of just where Islamic education is going by examining where, culturally and politically speaking, it has come from. The book focuses on schools in five countries: the region's two dominant Muslim-majority countries, Malaysia (60% Muslim) and Indonesia (87.8% Muslim), and three countries with especially restless Muslim minorities, the Philippines, Thailand, and Cambodia. The remainder of the chapter examines the varieties and genealogies of Islamic schooling in Southeast Asia; highlights the relationship between Islamic education in Southeast Asia and that in the Middle East; and provides an overview of the subsequent chapters.
