UNIVERSITAS INDONESIA

Masters Programme in Terrorism and

International Security Studies

(17 tuition fee waivers are available on competitive basis)

Universitas Indonesia has recently established a new Master's Degree
Programme in Terrorism and Security Studies which will be managed by the
Department of International Relations in the Faculty of Social and
Political Sciences. Universitas Indonesia aims to play a role in
anti-terrorism efforts, at least in two ways. First it will contribute
to the development of governmental counter-terrorism policy. This
requires strategies to hinder terrorist activity as well as efforts to
protect civil rights and social stability. Our rationale is to support
and inform the state in its mission to counter terrorism and prevent the
derogation of civil rights and liberties whilst also maintaining good
governance, security and social services for the people. Secondly it
will help create an unbiased and academically sound body of terrorism
studies free from the agenda of ruling governments, political parties,
agencies and private entities.

Terrorism is only part of a bigger vision of problemmatic issues
confronting Indonesians, and other citizens of the world, which are
associated with global uncertainty. These issues include financial
instability, climate change, pandemics and a range of networked threats
organized and run by various illegitimate actors. Globalization has
facilitated increased volumes of trade and wealth, as will also be
generated from ASEAN's Free Trade Agreement with China. However we need
to be mindful that this wealth will be unevenly distributed.
Globalization has also generated an underclass of malcontents and this
offers opportunities for new criminal activity and political violence on
a considerable scale. This is not limited to organized crime but also
parallel effects of money laundering, corruption, weapons proliferation
and the emergence of kleptocratic regimes.

Indonesia's security sector, the parliament, the executive body and
security agencies can no longer ignore transnational security issues.
While the rush against terrorism dies down as succcessful police
killings and captures pile up, we can ask ourselves whether intelligence
and security agencies have sufficient capacity to address other
transnational issues such illegal trafficking of drugs, women and
children and infiltration of illegitimate actors into our borders.

In regard to this background the new Terrorism and Security Studies
Programme will address the following key issues:

* What is terrorism and what drives it?

* Who are the 'terrorists' and how do they operate?

* Which political methods can best help us explain and
understand terrorism and state responses to terrorism?

* How do national security systems engage with the terrorist
threat?

* How does the interaction between the international Islamist
movement and the nature of the state in Indonesia contribute to the
emergence of Islamist terrorism in the country?

* Why has political Islam gained popularity in Indonesia and why
has it gained significant power in government decision-making. How does
this compare with other political movements that have also applied
violence in their campaigns?

* What are the dynamics between the Islamist movement in the
Middle East and South Asia and the growth of the movement in Southeast
Asia, especially Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and
Indonesia?

* How have the processes of globalization impacted upon
terrorism.

* How can we understand the relationship between democracy,
authoritarianism and terrorism?

* How is the threat of terrorism perceived by state or non-state
groups? How does this translate into counter-terror policy?

* How have Indonesia and other S-E Asian countries interacted
with Western military and economic support in recent history?

17 bursaries for a full fee waiver are available for the 2010 intake of
students. These bursaries will be available on a competitive basis.
Grantees of a fee waiver will be short-listed from the results of the
selection test held by Universitas Indonesia.

Interested individuals must apply for the entrance test (Seleksi Masuk
Universitas Indonesia/ SIMAK UI) before 23 March 2010. Applicants can
