The international and the Indonesian nationalist movement

Kizir, Didem Gül
This study is an attempt to understand the impact of “the international” on the emergence and development of Indonesian nationalism. It argues that both nationalism studies and IR discipline have remained insufficient in understanding the international. Going beyond the state-centric, structuralist and Euro-centric conception of the international, this thesis inquires into the ideational movements. In search for the question of how the international has influenced nationalism in the case of colonial Indonesia the main premise of this thesis is that four international ideational factors, namely Pan-Islamism, Modernist Islam, Marxism, and Pan-Asianism determined the course of Indonesian nationalism. It further argues that the reasons for these ideas to have become influential in colonial Indonesia are embedded within the intensified impact of the colonial structure at the turn of the twentieth century and anti-colonial reactions to it both from the colonial and semi-colonial world including Indonesian society.
