Statement of Confrence

Statement from the International Conference
“Kemerdekaan dan Perubahan Jati Diri: Postcolonial Indonesian Identity”
Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta 14-15 Januari 2010

As Indonesian and International historians, we oppose the banning of book in Indonesia recently. For example, John Roosa’s book Dalih Pembunuhan Massal. This book is an objective work of historical scholarship. Its original English version has already received high praise throughout the world and is including in teaching curricula in Indonesia and other Asian countries, Australia, North America and Europe.

As we understand it, the banning is based on outdated laws. Indonesia has made great progress in achieving democracy over the past decade, and this attack on academic freedom represents a set back for Indonesian society in its struggle for a free and prosperous future. The articles presented in the conference gives a picture of an Indonesia that from its inception intended to develop a national identity that would accommodate differences of opinions and appreciate uphold the academic freedom of experiences since the early period of independence. We hope that the relevant authorities will reconsider this banning as quickly as possible.
