印度尼西亚的温和穆斯林

伊斯兰教在印度尼西亚拥有2亿信徒,成就了全世界最庞大的穆斯林社会。而这一支伊斯兰教正日益明显的表现出其与中东地区更为古老的穆斯林社会所信奉的伊斯兰教的差异。的确,一位杰出的学者,Gottingen大学的Bassam Tibi将印尼描述为“不同宗教和族裔文化的社群和平共处及相互尊重的典范。”

一些历史学家认为印尼的这种温和的伊斯兰教形态反应了早在14世纪时外国商人将其引入当地的方式。那时,当地的沿海文化已经吸纳了平等主义、物力论和相互依靠,这些思想都对伊斯兰教的意识形态和实践方式产生了影响。此外,印尼的伊斯兰教受到了苏菲派的重大影响。该教派强调信仰的精神层面而不是法律因素。

无独有偶,Hebrew大学的Giora Eliraz认为从中东引入印尼的伊斯兰教理念发生了变化。在19世纪伟大的埃及改革家Muhammad Abduh的影响下,它变得更具包容性和更为多元化。在埃及,Abduh的进步理念只得到了极小部分改革者的支持。然而在印尼,Abduh关于伊斯兰现代性的先见之明促成了该国最大的现代派穆斯林组织,Muhammadiyah的创立。该组织代表了印尼主流的温和派伊斯兰教。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
