Speaker: Muhammad Riza Nurdin, PhD candidate in Germany
M. Riza Nurdin is doing research on social capital and (“sacred”) aid: civil society organizations (CSOs) in Indonesian Disaster Recovery. This presentation will
The Humanitarian Forum Indonesia, founded in 2008, make a census of Indonesia’s main FBO: Dompet Dhuafa, Mdmc, Karina, ACE/PPKM, World Vision, YEU, YTB, PKPU, Church World Service, Habitat for Humanity, Rebana Indonesia, Oikumene, Rumah Zakat and also ACT, Al-Azhar, Islamic Relief, LPBINU, MPBI & Muslim Aid.focus more specifically on the third chapter of his thesis: civil society and sanctification of aid. He bases himself on the assumption the faith-based and secular CSOs “operate within the same legal and political framework of secular civil society” but the former differ because of their religious motives, moral duty and divine incentive (Berger 2003, pp. 19-20). Both CSOs and FBOs compete each other in their service and fund raising (Barnett and Stein 2012). The sanctification of aid is the “creation of the sacred, establishment and protection of a space that is viewed as pure and separate from the profane (Barnett and Stein 2012). He is wondering in this chapter if competition between CSOs and FBOs also happens in Indonesia.
