The impact of development of fundamentalist Islam on Aust/Indon relations

January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am

Royal United Services Institute of Victoria presents Greg Barton, Research Professor and Chair of Global Islamic Politics. 
Greg Barton is one of Australia’s leading scholars of both modern Indonesia and of terrorism and countering violent extremism. For more than 25 years he has undertaken extensive research on Indonesia politics and society, especially of the role of Islam as both a constructive and a disruptive force. He has been active in the inter-faith dialogue initiatives and has a deep commitment to building understanding of Islam and Muslim society. The central axis of his research interests is the way in which religious thought, individual believers and religious communities respond to modernity and to the modern nation state. He also has a strong interest in international relations and comparative international politics. Since 2004 he has made a comparative study of progressive Islamic, with particular reference to Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah in Indonesia and the transnational Hizmet movement inspired by Turkey’s Fethullah Gulen.

Greg also has a general interest in security studies and human security and a particular interest in countering violent extremism.
