Abstract

Drawing on the literature on the spread of transnational Islam this thesis examines Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) in Papua from 1998 to 2021. The thesis uses a qualitative research design. A key finding is that the development of HTI in Papua was caused by the shift in political opportunity structures following the demise of the Soeharto regime (1967-1998). Using resources mobilisation theory, it shows how HTI maximised its resources through da'wa activities and recruitment. HTI framed Indonesia as afflicted by social ills, demonstrating the failure of democracy. It concludes that the presence of transnational Islamic groups including HTI have been detrimental to the peacebuilding process.
