... "Unity in Diversity" (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika) should remain the country's guiding motto, and the expansion of Islamic law would undermine national integrity. Remarkably, the chairman of the MPR and the country's president at the time were both Islamic leaders and both had previously served as the chairmen of the country's large Islamic organizations (Künkler 2008). Abdurrahman Wahid, former chair of NU, had been elected president in 1999; Amien Rais, former chairman of Muhammadiyah, had become Speaker of the MPR. ...

Article
This article traces the usage of scholarly categories in online public discourses in Indonesia and Malaysia. I make two main arguments: First, digital dissemination and discussion of such categories accelerate and distort the reductions that are part of scholarly work. Second, these reductions in online debates contribute to a homogenization of positions on Islam on the level of actors as well as the level of arguments. Muslim authority on matters of creed has become more monopolized by a small group of scholars since the mid-2000s, and a broad spectrum of positions has become concentrated into a few homogenized group identities. This homogenization is driven by the increased use of new media, especially the internet. One effect of this is that more extreme positions on Islamic interpretations have become acceptable in the public spheres in Southeast Asia.

Die Frage nach dem Einfluss religiöser Akteure auf Demokratisierungsprozesse ist in der Politikwissenschaft bisher wenig systematisch erforscht worden. Aktuelle Debatten um Religion in der Demokratisierungsforschung kreisen meist noch immer um Varianten der Kompatibilitätsfrage (können mehrheitlich-buddhistische, mehrheitlich-muslimische Länder u. a. demokratisch werden?). Nur wenige Studien widmen sich der empirischen Erforschung des Einflusses religiöser Akteure auf die Erosion autoritärer Herrschaft oder die erfolgreiche Konsolidierung formaldemokratischer Systeme – mag dieser Einfluss konstruktiv, oder obstruktiv, oder gar destruktiv sein.

Als Forschungslücke innerhalb des Relationship Marketing konnte die bislang nicht hinreichende Erklärung ausgelösten Kundenverhaltens durch das Konstrukt der Kundenzufriedenheit bestimmt werden. Der Anspruch der vorliegenden Arbeit bestand vor diesem Hintergrund darin, einen weiteren Erklärungsansatz für das Kundenverhalten durch die Integration von „Stolz“ in das Relationship Marketing zu bieten. Hierfür war das Phänomen „Kundenstolz“ hinsichtlich seiner Formen bzw. Konstrukte zu operationalisieren, deren jeweilige Antezedenzien und Konsequenzen zu identifizieren, kundenstolz-relevante Produkte bzw. Produktmerkmale herauszustellen und daraus Implikationen für Theorie und Praxis des Relationship Marketing abzuleiten.

The article comparatively investigates the role of religious actors in the democratization processes of five ‘young’ democracies from the Catholic, Protestant, Christian-Orthodox and Muslim world: West Germany after World War II (1945–1969), Georgia and Ukraine post-1987/9, Mali (post- 1987), and Indonesia from 1998. The analysis provides an overview of the roles religious actors played in the erosion of authoritarian rule, the transition to democracy and subsequent democratic consolidation processes, as well as de-democratization processes. Our three paired comparisons, including one in-country comparison, show that the condition which most affected the role of religious actors in all three phases of democratic transitions was the de facto autonomy they enjoyed vis-a`-vis the political regime as well as the organizational form these actors took. Their aims, means, and the political significance of their theology were highly dependent on the extent to which they benefitted from de facto autonomy within the state.

Our three paired comparisons, including one in-country comparison, show that the condition which most affected the role of religious actors in all three phases of democratic transitions was the legal position they enjoyed vis-à-vis the political regime as well as the organizational form these actors took. Their aims, means, and the political significance of their theology were highly dependent on their de facto legal status within the state.
