Video archive: Indonesia’s Dangerous Transition with Dan Slater


Dan Slater

We welcome Dr. Dan Slater, James Orin Murfin Professor of Political Science; Director, Center for Emerging Democracies, University of Michigan.

Despite its large size, Indonesia remains virtually unknown to most Americans. But as one of the world’s largest democracies, the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation, and as an economic driver of ASEAN, why does it fly below the radar? Join us for a timely conversation with Dr. Dan Slater from the University of Michigan as he contextualizes Indonesia and discusses the impacts of their presidential elections happening in February. With democracies in decline worldwide, what does the future hold for Indonesia?
