Carla Power will explore more deeply her latest book Home, Land, and Security, from her journey to explore extremist movements in the Middle East, Egypt, and other regions. By interviewing various sources, including those involved, Carla tried to describe the causes of the birth of these movements with a broad analysis of the universal meaning of humanity.  With moderator Bernando J. Sujibto and writer and sociologist at UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, we will examine the phenomenon of radicalism and broadly relate it to the context of democracy in Indonesia.

Supported by the Embassy of the United States, Jakarta.

Carla Power akan mengupas lebih mendalam perihal buku terkininya, Home, Land and Security yang merupakan buah perjalanannya menelusuri gerakan-gerakan ekstremis di Timur-Tengah, Mesir dan kawasan lainnya. Dengan mewawancarai berbagai narasumber, termasuk mereka yang terlibat, Carla mencoba menguraikan sebab-musabab lahirnya gerakan dengan analisa yang meluas perihal makna kemanusiaan yang universal. Dengan moderator Bernando J. Sujibto, penulis dan sosiolog UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, kita akan menelisik fenomena radikalisme dan sedikit banyak mempertautkannya dengan konteks demokrasi di Indonesia.
