In a recent study conducted by the World Economic Forum, Indonesia will have the world’s 5th largest economy by 2050, making it the world’s richest Muslim-majority. Now is the time to look at how and why this – the world’s most populous Muslim country (which is not an Islamic State) – could be a model for the Muslim world.
During this roundtable discussion with a delegation of senior Indonesian leaders, hosted by the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation and Indonesia’s Leimena Institute at the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute.
The delegation is traveling to various capital cities meeting with key people who care about religious freedom, democracy, toleration, and respect for human rights. They are exploring how the Indonesian model might be a counternarrative to what is getting exported into their country and around the world from groups like ISIS.
